Rev. Dr. Anita R Wright

Reverend, Doctor Anita R. Wright is a woman with deep love for God. Her ministry demonstrates her passion for preaching and teaching to transform lives. She is committed to sharing the Word of God as God gives her opportunity through her service to the congregation and community, through her weekly Bible Studies and worship experiences.

Dr. Wright grew up in Big Island,VA with her loving parents and three siblings. She attended the Bedford County Public Schools and was actively invested in the Sharon Baptist Church. There she grew in her faith as she participated in the youth ministry, Outreach and Christian Education, and other ministries of the church.

Upon graduating from high school, Reverend Wright felt a pull that was the beginning of her long journey to the proclamation ministry. In 2002 Anita was licensed by the Sharon Baptist Church. Understanding the necessity of being prepared, Reverend Wright continued her education at Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union and Princeton Theological Seminary, where she received a variety of scholarships and awards including the S. Leon Whitney Scholarship (VUU) and the esteemed George E. Sweazey Award for Excellence in Homiletics (PTS). Dr. Wright also holds degrees from Virginia University of Lynchburg (A.A.,B.A.) and most recently Drew University (DMIN).

Dr. Wright's ministry has been varied in its appropriation. Her ministry has included mentoring other ministers. She has actively mentored several younger colleagues in ministry who are seeking to fulfill God's call for their lives. As a part of this, Reverend Wright developed a Ministers in Training course to be used with a local Baptist Association near Richmond, VA.

As part of her call to the local church and to build communities of support among other clergy, Reverend Wright became an original member of the Emerging Sister Circle: a group of women who have dedicated themselves to work towards each others' success in ministry, recognizing that six women committed to each other can change the world (www.emergingsistercircle.com). Further, Dr. Wright is a member of the local ministers' alliances and colleague cohort groups.

As a bi-vocational minister, Reverend Wright has also served as a Hospice Chaplain, a chaplain intern, and a Residential Childcare Counselor. Even in these places, she has sought to use her gifts and callings to impact the world and transform the lives of those around her. Currently, Dr. Wright serves the Bloomfield College community as the Director of the Office of Spiritual Life and an adjunct professor.

Rev. Dr. Anita Wright was ordained by Reverend Leroy M. Mitchell III at the Greater Brookville Church in Lynchburg, VA in 2010 and in the Presbyterian Church (USA) in April 2017. She currently serves as the pastor of the Trinity Presbyterian Church in Montclair, NJ.
