Ruby Manning
- Beach Campus Youth Pastor

Kia Ora, my name is Ruby and I started coming along to Grace at the beginning of my high school years in 2009. My husband Hamish and I got married in April 2017 and live in New Brighton. We love to travel, eat real fruit ice creams in summer and go on adventures with our friends and wider family.

I am a qualified social worker and completed my degree at the University of Canterbury. Although I am a Middleton Grange girl I'm an East-sider through and through. I have been working with young people in a youth work capacity since 2013. I have a heart for young people because I know how challenging life can be in those teenage years. During my time at high school I valued having mentors and supportive people that walked alongside me and challenged me to grow in my relationship with God and I want to do that for our young people today. I work as a social worker for Strengthening Linwood Youth Trust at Linwood College 12 hours a week and spend the rest of my time in my local community being the youth pastor at Grace Vineyard Beach Campus. I love our church, I love our community and I can't wait to meet you!
