Season Two, Passing the Baton

1 minute read

Pastor Cassandra Wainright has pursued a life of service. Her path started in the church.

“The seed for service actually came from my affiliation with our church,” Wainright says. “My mother raised us up in church… So, that sense of servanthood actually came out of my church.”

Early in life, Wainright wanted to be a teacher. Eventually, her “evangelistic spirit” drew her into ministry. She ultimately became the first female president of the Concerned Clergy Coalition of Kansas City.

Watch the attached video as Wainright reflects on her multifaceted life of public service with “Passing the Baton” host Andrea Ellis.

Sandy Woodson is an independent producer, most recently of “AIDS in KC,” which aired on Kansas City PBS. “Passing the Baton” is presented with support from Health Forward Foundation and
Husch Blackwell.
