Elsa Wright
- North Canterbury Pastor's PA

I became a follower of Jesus in my mid 20s and then my life really began! I've been a part of the Grace family since 2005 and I've spent time in the City, Beach, Plains and Pegasus campuses – I love being part of one church that is lived out in different locations. I joined the staff in 2008 and worked full time until my first baby was born. Now I assist in the background in between the joy (and chaos) of being married, parenting our young children, and looking after our wayward animals in beautiful North Canterbury. Although I've been through challenging times since becoming a Christian, I am blessed to be part of this authentic church family and to know the peace that God promises in John 14:27.
