The Southern Baptist Convention’s International Missions Board (IMB) just announced that Bryant Wright has been named the new president of Send Relief. Wright is the founding pastor of Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in Marietta, GA and led the congregation for 38 years. Wright was pursued by Kevin Ezell, president of the North American Mission Board and will report to both Ezell and Paul Chitwood, president of the International Mission Board.
Wright is a former president of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Wright is involved in several leftist pro-open-borders campaigns including the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), a front group for the National Immigration Forum which is heavily funded by George Soros and other leftist organizations. While nearly nobody contests the fact that Russell Moore, head of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission is far left of center, it is becoming clear as we uncover more information that Bryant Wright may be even further to the left.
Wright has led his church to embrace a massive refugee resettlement effort based on the unbiblical and false teaching that Jesus himself was a refugee and has openly opposed the president and his local government’s efforts to protect its citizens from overburdening the welfare system and indefinitely turning entire neighborhoods into refugee camps. He has called on the state to effect mass immigration stating that “the Bible teaches people to care for refugees.”
“How we respond to refugees and immigrants is how we respond to Jesus,” Wright said in an interview on 60 Minutes saying that Jesus was the “ultimate immigrant” as he “left His native land in heaven to come to our land here on earth.”
Johnson has turned his church into a refugee resettlement ministry with more than 120 volunteers from Johnson Ferry church involved.
Wright — like Russell Moore — has also made it one of his primary missions to oppose Donald Trump.
Several other Southern Baptist entity heads tweeted the news early on — which have now interestingly been deleted — including Danny Akin and open-borders zealot Alan Cross. Why the tweets were deleted is not known but the news has been officially announced at the Southern Baptist Convention’s official propaganda outlet, the Baptist Press.
