Rafe Wright – Senior Associate Pastor – Adult Ministries and Missional Life
What I Do:
Make disciples who impact their community and world for Christ and his kingdom.
What I Love About Christ Fellowship:
It’s a church full of grace with a clear mission and purpose, always moving forward for the cause of Christ and His Kingdom.
How I Ended Up at Christ Fellowship:
During my senior year at Dallas Theological Seminary, I was required to do a church internship. My wife Laurie was managing the Ranch Country Club at Stonebridge, and a guy named Mark Dunn was an employee. He told her about the church plant in McKinney. I had visited Fellowship Bible Church North and that Sunday Bruce shared about the McKinney church plant. I figured a brand new church would need some help, so I called Bruce about an internship.
Before Christ Fellowship:
Before coming to Christ Fellowship I was attending Northwest Bible Church, going to DTS and working for my mom in her clothing apparel business.
How I Met Jesus:
Through a divine encounter over the phone with a stranger I reached through a wrong number, twice in fact. After I accidentally (providentially) reached him twice in a span of two minutes, he creatively got me to listen to the gospel and I trusted Christ over the phone.
Favorite Bible Verse:
1 Pet 4:1-4
Random Fun Fact:
I used to own a nightclub.
