Rev. Monty C. Wright |
Lead Pastor, author, speaker, musician, activist, coffee snob
Thanks for cruising by to see who’s who at SVA! I’m Monty, and I am the lead and founding pastor of SVA. The best part of who Monty is is first centered in my relationship with Jesus Christ. I am thrilled to have an incredible wife, (Amy), and two kids, (Emma and Liam) all who he keep me on my toes and are a source of great pride (the holy kind) and love. !
In addition to teaching, leadership development, staff development, missional direction, spiritual direction and all that goes with the territory, I am most alive when having spiritual conversations with people contemplating the reality of God, while enjoying the taste and aroma of an incredible expression of God’s agrarian creativity in coffee. I have a dream to see the church really become the church, and stop playing a religious game…that means my ethostic passion as a pastor is to create an environment where people are able to grow closer to God and each other, uniquely becoming the men and women that God created them to be. That means a safe place to stretch minds and hearts to think beyond what is, to what not only could be, but what God’s desire is for His church. This will impact our world and community with a Christ-reality inviting everyone to enter into God’s journey for their life.
Okay now for the fun stuff… I love all things Scottish, therefore Braveheart is the best movie ever made! My happy place is some cool location with my wife and kids, a great book or four, time to reflect, dream, and enjoy the moment God has given me!
