Born in Lane, South Carolina, Rev. Bright is the youngest son of Thomas and Anna Bell Bright.  He contributes his religious upbringing that formulated his strong faith in God, focused discipline, lifelong lessons and teachings, and desire to always do better to his great parents.  Raised in a family that taught respect of him and others within and outside the home, he and his six siblings found themselves abundantly rich with love that affords families to stand regardless of whatever situation they face.
Rev. Bright received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Winthrop College in Rock Hill, South Carolina.  While attending Winthrop, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserves where he served for 4 ½ years.  He later joined Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., and became Polemarch (President) of the college chapter.  After graduation from Winthrop, he re-enlisted in the military by joining the United States Naval Reserves where he pursued a medical career and received his training at the Jacksonville Naval Hospital.  
Near the conclusion of his enlistment in the U.S. Naval Reserves, he obtained employment with Delta Air Lines, Inc. where he left after a successful 17 ½ year career   to pursue his own business.  In 2006, he launched his own business, Bright Abundance, Inc., a religious apparel company, where he has since trademarked the logo, Cot-K (Child of the King).  While launching his business, he enrolled at the Interdenominational Theological Center, Morehouse School of Religion in pursuit of a Master of Divinity Degree.  In May, 2011, he earned his Master of Divinity Degree with a concentration in Psychology of Religion in Pastoral Care. 
He is currently employed as a resident Chaplain for Emory Healthcare. 
Rev. Bright was licensed and ordained at Antioch Baptist Church North in Atlanta, Georgia by Rev. Dr. Cameron M. Alexander.  He is an Associate Minister and has held several positions within the Church, to include President of Antioch’s Ministerial Alliance.  His involvement in various outreach ministries allows him to serve the least, less, and lost. 
He is married to the former Vivian Bush.  God blessed then with four sons, Julian, Ryan, Evan, and Sterling.  Evan, their 3rd son, was called back home to be with the Lord.
Rev. Bright has been afforded many opportunities, all of which he contributes to the grace of God.  Thus, to put things in perspective, Rev. Bright is a Child of the King and will always be a servant of God.  So when all his work down here is done, he wants to be able to say like Paul in II Timothy 4:7- 
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.
