Pastor Jon and Robin Wright
About our Pastor
Pastor Jon and Robin Wright obeyed the Lord's call on their lives and founded Metro Church of Kansas City in 1981.  The congregation began meeting at the Betterway Supper Club off North Oak Trafficway but quickly out grew the space.  The church began meeting in a conference room at the Holiday Inn and after three short years the congregation purchased a church building.  Since 1986 Metro Church has been worshipping on the corner of NE 48th Street and N Brighton Ave.

Jon Wright is a fourth generation Pastor. He was born and reared in Kansas City, Missouri. As a young child he sensed that he was called to preach; however, he resisted the thought in favor of a more regular vocation. Nevertheless, God so powerfully worked in Jon's life during his Sophomore year of High School, that he could no longer deny the call; he then, openly proclaimed God's life calling. He immediately began to redirect his life to preparing for the ministry. Jon began his first official ministry position, serving with his father, Christian Wright, in June of 1971. Jon counts serving with his father as some of his best training for the ministry. Another significant part of God's equipping Jon for ministry happened his Freshman year in college. He fell in love with a girl in his home church, Robin James!
