Chris Pennington
- Operations Manager, Beach Campus

Born and raised in Christchurch, I am the youngest of five kids (two brothers, two sisters) from a fantastic Christian home. I came to Grace Vineyard in high school and immediately found my spiritual 'home'. I did two years at the Ministry Training College of NZ, the second year being an internship with the Young Adults Ministry at Grace, and apart from a two year adventure in Wellington with my absolutely gorgeous wife, I've been at Grace ever since.

As the Operations Manager for Beach Campus, my job is to help everyone, with everything. When I'm not at Beach Campus I try my best to be a bit of a tech geek, thoroughly enjoy going for a good run or bike ride, watching a loud movie or, if my wife lets me, playing a bit of Halo on the Xbox. Jesus is my HomeBoy.
