Chapel Speaker Bios for WOW 2022 

Our World Outreach Week Chapel speakers this year are father and son Bob and Jonathan Wright. Each of them has demonstrated a life of extraordinary dedication to the cause of Christ.  

Dr. Bob Wright dedicated his life to Christ as a senior in high school and never looked back. Beginning in 1957, Bob and his wife, Rita, served the Brazilian people of the Amazon basin for twenty years. Even when circumstances dictated a return to the United States, Bob simply shifted his passion and energies to new fields – China, Romania, and Corban University students! Bob was the first Corban University faculty member to take students with him as he carried out overseas missions work. And for 35 years, he imparted godly wisdom and missionary calling to hundreds of students to imitate him in serving Christ worldwide. 

Son Jonathan Wright and his wife have served with “No Reserves, No Retreat! No Regrets!” (William Borden) in various ministries and locations since 1985 with a clear focus on discipleship, evangelism, and church planting. The Wrights have had the privilege of front-row seats during strategic historical moments. They were in Romania in 1989 when the Iron Curtain collapsed. Fruitful ministry in Vienna prepared believers in the international community for the refugee wave of 2015. The Wright’s ministry expanded into the Middle East during pivotal moments in Iraq leading up to the crisis with ISIS in 2014, and in Egypt in 2017, where the doors have continued to open in the era of more openness for the Gospel. 

Two generations and sixty-five years of passionate focus to give all for the Gospel of Jesus Christ: All In.
