Dr. Jim Wright, Senior Pastor

Jim is a modern day renaissance man. Besides being a gifted teacher, he’s a writer and also an entrepreneur. Jim and his wife, Laura, started a weight loss education company where they traveled teaching nutritional education in churches, schools, businesses and their two central Indiana locations. After closing his local stores he joined forces with a national online weight loss and nutrition company.

Jim didn’t start out ministry as a teacher, but as a musician. You can still find him playing keyboards and singing each Sunday.

Jim holds two Master’s degrees: Master of Church Music from Southwestern Theological Seminary and Master of Divinity as well as a Doctorate of Ministry degree from New Orleans Theological Seminary.
