Alan Wright and Anne, his wife of 35 years, make their home in Winston-Salem, NC where Alan has served as Sr. Pastor of the historic, dynamic, multi-site Reynolda Church (EPC) for over 22 years. Alan loves golf, piano, writing and still going on dates with Anne.

Anne, a Bible teacher who leads Awakenings (a weekly ministry reaching over 200 women), homeschooled their two children, Bennett (married to Amy) and Abby. Bennett is a student at Duke Law School and Abby attends the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Alan was always devoted to sharpening his mind (Phi Beta Kappa from UNC-CH and valedictorian of his Columbia Theological Seminary class), but his heart was touched by the Spirit in deep and profound ways in 1993.

That touch of grace began a healing journey in which Alan discovered how the love of God mends the emptiness left from a broken home. Since 1997, Alan has authored five books: Free Yourself, Be Yourself (formerly entitled Shame Off You), A Childlike HeartLover of My SoulGod Moments and Grace X 2. His newest book, The Power to Bless, is scheduled for release by Baker Books February 2, 2021.
