    Pastor Hunter Wright

    Pastor Hunter Wright is the Lead Pastor of Ignition Church in Knoxville, TN. In 2007, God birthed a vision in the heart of Pastor Hunter to start a church in his hometown of Knoxville, TN that would change lives by the power of the Gospel. Soon after, he and his wife Kristina moved to Charlotte, NC to be a part of Elevation Church. Over the next three years, Pastor Hunter started and completed his seminary degree, learned from the leadership at Elevation, and witnessed God move at one of the fastest growing churches in America. During his time in Charlotte, God brought together 14 faith-filled people to form Ignition Church’s core team who would go on to quit jobs, sell houses, and relocate to Knoxville to be a part of and start the church. In the summer of 2011, Pastor Steven Furtick and Elevation Church ordained Pastor Hunter and officially sent out the Ignition Church core team.
