Michael became a Christian and was baptized in 1971 at the age of 13. He was discipled by good and godly people in his local church (a church plant). They equipped him to rigorously read and study and rightly handle the word of God. He was also trained to play guitar, write music, and lead people to worship the Lord through song. Dr. Wright holds a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry Careers and Counseling from East Texas Baptist University (1983), a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (1989), and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary (2008).
Michael married Natalie on May 28, 1983 in Tatum, Texas. They have two grown children and four grandchildren. They now live happily in Keller, Texas and have done so since December 2008. Michael and Natalie enjoy travel and time spent hanging with family. As a serious hobby, Michael is an instrument-rated private and commercial pilot.
“Serving the Lord via the local church has been a lifelong blessing. I’m officially retired, but not on vacation. I’ll serve Christ via family and the family of God until he calls me home.” MW
