Rev. Julie Wright joined the Amazing Grace community in 2015 as Associate Pastor and became Lead Pastor in 2017. Julie grew up in a small town in southern Minnesota and attended a rural church where playing duck-duck-gray duck and hiding in the bell tower were favorite past-times. She left the business world in 2008, at the height of the economy crash, and began a call to ministry which, so far, has been quite an adventure! She makes her home with her family in Mahtomedi and enjoys weight lifting, snow shoeing, kayaking, and coffee.
