APOSTLE DR. ANTONIO E. WRIGHT
While serving in the United States Army, Apostle Dr. Antonio E. Wright received direction from the Lord to relocate to Virginia and establish an international ministry to further the building of His kingdom. After six years of distinguished military service, Apostle Wright and his wife (spiritual partner), obeyed the Lord’s direction and moved to Virginia where they found plenty of His work to do. They worked tirelessly with several local ministries, including the Fort Belvoir Gospel Services, Scripture Cathedral, and Prosperity Baptist Church. During his tenure at Prosperity Baptist Church, Apostle Wright served as the Assistant Pastor for a time and was later elevated to the office of Pastor. God rewarded these years of faithful and dedicated service by positioning Apostle Wright in a place to move forward with the vision of establishing an international ministry.
In March 1990, the Church of the Redeemed was born in Lorton, Virginia. Three years later, in 1993, Apostle Wright was moved to further extend the ministry and the vision of mentoring other pastors and leaders, by overseeing the growth and development of fellowship churches through counseling and oversight. In addition, providing training to leaders and pastors, as well as mentoring elders and associate pastors so that we might all grow as men and women of faith, unity and integrity. God, in His omniscience and omnipotence, continued to move upon Apostle Wright to bring to fruition the vision of an international ministry.
From the humble beginnings of the Church of the Redeemed, God moved as only He can. From this church and the burning desire of Apostle Wright to reach out to others, the parent – The Church of the Redeemed International Ministries – was born. Apostle Wright serves as Founder, Chief Apostle, Presiding Prelate and CEO of this ministry. On March of 2014 the Church of the Redeemed then became known as The Church of the Redeemed International Ministries.
In his quest to continually expand the reaches of the vision, Apostle Wright serves diligently as President of Redeemed Bible Institute; CEO of Kingdom Builders Consulting Group, and CEO of Suburban Traders. Apostle Wright is also a member of The Global Embassy Network under the Mentorship of Dr. Rick Kendall.
Apostle Wright was directly called and chosen by God to spearhead, develop and oversee ministries and churches in the United States and abroad; to be a spiritual father to pastors and other church leaders; to counsel, teach and prepare local and regional and international churches, elders, deacons and staff to fulfill the vision and calling of the local shepherd.
He and his wife of 30 years, Prophetess Patricia A. Wright are blessed with two children and four grandchildren of which they are very proud. Their marriage has produced many shared experiences, including the honor of being licensed and ordained by Bishop Dr. Nathaniel Hayes of Bridgeport, Connecticut and receiving their college degrees from Bachelor of Ministry to Doctor of Theology and Doctor of Ministry from the Spirit of Truth Bible Institute.
“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. . . .”
