Brentley Wright, hailing from Rocky Mount, NC, is a product of a family deeply rooted in faith, with a legacy of devoted ministers spanning generations. Embracing his own spiritual journey, Brentley embraced Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at a young age and embarked on a path of ministry during his teenage years. As he delved into preaching and teaching the word of God, he discovered a profound passion for helping others comprehend the beautiful truth within the scriptures.

Beyond his spiritual calling, Brentley seamlessly combines his leadership prowess in the professional realm with a sense of purpose. Currently serving as the Director of Business Development at a technology-enabled consultancy, he endeavors to integrate workplace cultural excellence with the necessary tools to drive transformation. Brentley is also a startup entrepreneur building a new consulting firm focused on helping people with financial and leadership growth while delivering keynotes, inspirational talks, and Christ-focused sermons.

While excelling in his role, Brentley also assumes the significant responsibility of Board Chair for Accelerating Men, Inc. Within this capacity, he actively shapes the organization's trajectory by forging alliances with non-profit partners, championing financial literacy, and advocating for inclusive leadership practices for young men aged 10-18. Also serving on boards for AMIKids Wake Infinity and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Blacks in Technology Raleigh-Durham Chapter, and Raleigh Metro SHRM Diversity and Inclusion Committee.

Simultaneously, Brentley is pursuing a Bachelor of Divinity from Grimke Seminary, focused on Urban Ministry & Leadership, to serve his church effectively in the practical context of the urban context.

Central to Brentley's mission is the dedication to ministry in urban communities while helping leaders grow with God through spiritual development while teaching the bible. He firmly believes in embodying the gospel of Jesus Christ through speech and action, taking its transformative power to every corner of the world using the two most significant platforms: Faith and Work. However, amidst his myriad roles, Brentley finds no greater joy than raising his family with the love he shares with his wife, Kellie, and their two sons, Jaden and Justice Wright, in Durham, NC.
