Wright and Dori Doyle served with OMF International in Taiwan from 1976 to 1988. Their daughter Sarah was born in Taiwan during that time.

In 1989, they moved to Charlottesville, Virginia, where they began sharing the Gospel with Chinese scholars and their families connected with the University of Virginia.  China Institute was established that year.

The Doyles work closely with their church, which hosts a Mandarin Sunday school class. They have also been advisors to the undergraduate Chinese Christian Fellowship.

Wright has also preached in Chinese churches and taught in Chinese seminaries in North America, Taiwan, and England. He now focuses on writing and mentoring younger Chinese church leaders and Americans with a burden to serve God among the Chinese.
