Julia Wright

Minister with Children and Their Families


Julia Wright is the Minister with Children and their Families. She has been loving and leading the children of Providence since 2003.

Julia LOVES the hustle and bustle of Vacation Bible School. She is passionate about giving our youngest a solid biblical, age-appropriate foundation of faith. She enjoys taking children to Bible Drill competitions and is a hands-on mentor for not only our children, but for their parents as well.

The Providence children look forward to her birthday call every year and they rush to her on Wednesday evenings after the fellowship dinner so they can sing the prayer. She has a way of making children feel important, and that is evident throughout her ministry. She has written preschool missions curriculum for the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and is passionate about music and its importance in our children’s lives.

Julia enjoys spending time with her husband, Jay, their two sons Jackson and Jarrett – – – and their dog Jasper. (You can’t leave out one of the “Js!”)
