Our Church and School Staff

Senior Pastor: Greg Wright

Pastor Greg Wright grew up in West Virginia and came to know the Lord at the age of twelve. Having godly parents, he was encouraged to seek and do the Lord’s will for his life. In 1987 he graduated from Bob Jones University with a Bachelors degree in Bible and went on to complete his Masters degree in Pastoral Studies in 1989. He then worked at Morningside Baptist Church in Greenville, SC as the assistant pastor until 1993. While there, Pastor Wright also helped develop Open Door Baptist Missions. Led by the Lord to Utah, he and his family moved to St. George in the Fall of 1993 to start Westside Baptist Church.

Keeping the office and church activities organized gives her great satisfaction as she enjoys honoring the Lord by seeing that things are done "decently and in order" (I Corinthians 14:40).
