Emily-Jane Gauntlett

Kia ora friends! Originally from beautiful Southland, I’m coming into my 3rd year as youth pastor at Hope West Melton and love being a part of this amazing community, with wonderful families, young people and leaders! Being privileged to have been raised in a Godly family and learning about Christ from an early age, I am passionate about using my knowledge, skills and abilities to support our young people as they navigate life and seek out meaning and truth in an increasingly challenging environment. In my free time I’ll be found going on adventures with my hubby Lloyd, watching Star Wars, walking in the Port Hills with my dog Alfie, and recreating favourite meals from movies!
