Pastor Carl D. Wright

Lead Pastor - Hope City South

On February 2nd, 2005  at the young age of 16, Carl was baptized in Jesus Name and filled with the Holy Ghost at Highway Word of Faith (Wilmington, DE) under the leadership of Bishop Carl A. Turner.  One year later he received the call of God to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and soon after was accepted to attend Valor Christian College (formerly known as World Harvest Bible College) in Columbus, OH.  He graduated in 2010 with an Associates Degree in Pastoral Leadership and further studied in the Advanced Leadership Program.  After many years of serving great men and women of God, as well as traveling around the world preaching the Gospel and doing missions work, he received a word from the Lord to start a work in his home town, Newark, Delaware.

In April of 2013, he launched The Voice Ministries on the campus of the University of Delaware.  The ministry grew rapidly, thriving for nearly two years before he was led to close the church and move back to Columbus to serve alongside his Pastor, Brian M. Williams, at Hope City House of Prayer.

It was there that he met the beautiful Dr. Cassandra Dees and they eventually married.  They are now the proud parents of two beautiful boys - Zion Alexander and Ezra David!  After serving in various capacities for a number of years at Hope City, most notably as the Media Director and then as the Executive Pastor,  he was invited to lead a brand new Church and be the first Church Plant under the banner of Hope City House of Prayer.  In April of 2021 Pastor Carl and his wife launched Hope City South on the south side of Columbus, OH.

At the age of 33, Pastor Carl carries a Prophetic message of Faith, Hope and Freedom that saves the lost, empowers the people of God and sets at liberty those that are bound!  He believes wholeheartedly that he has been given this charge: “To Amplify the Voice of God in the Earth” and he has dedicated his life to this cause:  “To KNOW Jesus and to make Him Known!”
Hope City South is overseen by The Founder and Senior Pastor of Hope City House of Prayer, Apostle Brian M. Williams, and is undergirded by the Counsel of Hope City Elders.
