Ashleigh Harrison is a Rise Trainer with Innovista Ireland. She grew up in Lisburn, Northern Ireland. She studied at the University of Ulster where she served as a leader for two years with her Christian student group.
Ashleigh says, "I began my Christian journey as a young eight year old having been surrounded by Sunday school and church stories, but I feel it has been a continuing journey of growth and discovery that is very much still on-going."
Ashleigh moved to Dublin in September 2012, doubling the size of the team in Ireland as Innovista look to double its impact through training young leaders to lead mission.
Favourite Quote: "Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again."
C.S. Lewis (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe)
Hobbies: Hockey, Reading, journaling. I love coffee, deep chats and discovering my role in how God is restoring and redeeming his creation
What I Do: I develop and deliver training and mentoring that enables young people to become sources of hope in their communities.
Why I Do It: I do it because it matters to me that young people are given the opportunity to discover the freedom to enjoy being themselves. To recognise their value and role in the communities in which they live, enabling them to join with what God is doing in and around them as he transforms, restores and redeems his creation.
