Our First Lady

     First Lady Charline Wright has been called the “Priscilla” of Aquila, Elder Julius Earl Wright, Sr. She was born and raised in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. As a child she attended the Baptist church where her father and his descendants attended. After meeting and marrying her love of her life, Elder Julius Earl Wright, Sr., she was soon thereafter introduced to the Apostolic Doctrine. She was baptized in Jesus Name on Thanksgiving night of November 22, 1979. Elder Samuel Jones preached the revival message and shortly thereafter filled with the Holy Ghost.

     First Lady Wright has served in numerous capacities as Sunday School Teacher of youth and adults, Choir Member and President, Youth Advisor, Van Driver, Church Housekeeper, Church Clerk, Church Cook, and Administrative Assistant. No job is too small or great for she feels that she can do all things through Christ who will strengthen her. She also strives on the honor of serving the Lord in his vineyard and being one day rewarded with the joy of eternal life.

     First Lady Wright assisted her husband in establishing Hope Apostolic Faith Ministries. She proudly told him that she would follow him as he followed Christ. She is committed to the ministry and dedicates herself to the ministry as well as fulltime as a Public School Teacher of 32 years. She feels that the classroom is a ministry in itself. She has inspired many to pursue post undergraduate studies and to establish a relationship with the Lord. She is often called by many of her students as mom. They often feel a need to embrace her as she encounters them many years later. She was blessed with the gift of mathematics and has given her talents freely to those who desire to obtain degrees, associate degrees and certificates as registered nurses, physical therapists, and others.

     Her educational credits includes a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mathematics from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in 1979 as a Cumma Laude honor graduate and a Master’s of Science degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Central Arkansas in 1996. She is a licensed minister with the Arkansas Pentecostal Assemblies of the World. She is a member and is affiliated with the National Educational Association, Arkansas Education Association, Arkansas Retired Teachers Association, Pulaski County Association of Classroom Teachers, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Beta Chi National Honor Society, Alpha Chi National Honor Society, and Who’s Who, and a Kellogg Foundation Scholar.

     She is a dedicated wife to her beloved husband, Elder Julius E. Wright, Sr. of 34 years and the devoted mother of her three sons, Julius, Jr., Jarvis, and Rodney.

     First Lady Wright’s untiring devotion to the gospel and her compassion for people emulates and motivates others to love one another. She teaches the Word with an anointing that is undeniable that she is called to be a teacher of God’s people for the edification of the body of Christ and the perfecting of the Saints.
