Living Martyr Ministries

Living Martyr Ministries exists to bring the church of today back to the passion, purity and power of the early church!

Matthew Wright has been involved in ministry since he received his call to preach at 12 years old. He graduated from the Evangelism and Missions program at World Harvest Bible College (now Valor Christian College) in 2004 and in 2006 he completed the Discipleship Training School (DTS) with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Hurlach Germany. After completing his DTS he stayed on as a full time missionary with YWAM for three more years. Since returning home he served as a youth and associate pastor for Connection Church in Oregon City for five years and is currently starting a new phase in his life and ministry.

Tigist Wright, Matthew's wife, graduated from the Addis Ababa School of Commerce in Banking and Insurance. She then served in YWAM Ethiopia for three years before finally deciding to go to Hurlach, Germany to complete a DTS in 2008. She then stayed on as a staff member for a few months before joining the Bible Core Course (BCC), an intense 3 month study of the entire Bible. After completing the BCC she returned home to Ethiopia and spent some time working with Strong Hearts Ethiopia before traveling to Portland OR with her husband. She served alongside Matthew at Connection Church and they are now entering this new phase together.

Living Martyr Ministries is currently based in Woodbridge, VA but is called to the global church regardless of country, denomination, or setting. Matthew and Tigist have a heart to serve the Body of Christ wherever God opens the door and desire to travel to cities, states, and countries all over the world as led by the Holy Spirit and invited by people.

Living Martyr Ministries is called to equip and train ministers. This will be done through outreach, teaching, and discipleship. Some specific ways that God is using Living Martyr Ministries are as follows:
  1. Teaching - Matthew is ready to prayerfully accept invitations to teach at churches, conferences, schools or camps as God opens the door. 
  2. Writing - Thoughts of a Living Martyr is a blog that is updated several times a week and has  been in existence since 2010. Also Matthew's first book The Authority of the Church is on sale on Amazon both as an e-book and in print. Check out Matthew's author page and follow for notification of upcoming content.
  3. Mentoring - Matthew and Tigist are constantly looking for the right mentoring partnership. They love to disciple people and help them to find their full potential in ministry and in life.
  4. Partnerships - Matthew and Tigist have partnerships literally all over the world; including missionaries, ministries, and churches that they pray for and support in any way they can.
  5. Service - Living Martyr Ministries lives to serve the Body of Christ through serving individuals and the local church.
