Featured Speaker

Elder Ed Wright

Ed is no stranger to Monterey Bay Academy. He arrived on this campus in the fall of 1964 when his parents, Earl and Melva Wright, came to serve as faculty – Earl as Bible teacher and pastor and Melva as an English teacher. Upon graduating in 1969, Ed went on to Pacific Union College where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Theology. He later received his Master of Divinity and Doctorate of Ministry from Andrews University. Ed has worked within the Seventh-day Adventist church for 43 years. He pastored at various churches throughout California, eventually being led by the Lord to Collegedale, TN where he served as senior pastor of the Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church from 1994 to 2005. Currently, Ed is serving as the President of the Georgia-Cumberland Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in Calhoun, GA. We are delighted to welcome Ed back to our home on the shore as the worship hour speaker during Alumni Weekend.
