Administrator - Passion Kids

Kia ora! I am Ōtautahi born and bred and am lucky enough to have grown up in a Christian home with parents who love Jesus and have always been very involved in the church. There was never a click moment for me in my faith, but over the years with the support of many others, I've grown to adore Jesus. In 2020 I moved to Grace Vineyard in hopes of finding a community of people passionate about God, who could challenge and encourage me in my faith - and that is exactly what I found! I've loved being part of a community that share the love, grace and truth of Jesus so beautifully. 

I finished high school in 2018, spent a gap year volunteering on a series of different projects, trained to become a hip hop dance teacher, then spent two years working with schools and young people through World Vision. I recently started helping lead the kids at West Campus, and was blown away by the faith and kindness of the kids there; I'm pinching myself to think that I now get to work to serve these kids and our amazing kids team leaders! In my spare time, I love running, playing hockey, hanging out with my friends and whānau, exploring our beautiful backyard, and a cheeky bit of knitting and crochet.
