Susan Wright

Director of Youth Ministries

Susan Wright was born into a military family who settled in Cary, NC after her father’s retirement from the Air Force.  Her family attended White Plains UMC where she became involved in the youth group.  She served as the UMYF President of the Raleigh District, was involved on the leadership team for the Youth in Mission Conference of the Southeastern Jurisdiction, and was a young adult member of an Appalachia Service Project Team for 6 years.

Susan worked for Wake County Public Schools as a school counselor and in a variety of Central Office positions for over 28 years.  She retired from the school system to serve at Holland’s UMC as the Director of Youth Ministries.  Her experiences during her teen years in the church led her to a relationship with Jesus Christ which guides her belief that this phase of life is critical for young people in the formation of faith. Plus, she just LOVES youth and has a great time serving our Lord in this capacity! Susan is married to Dean and has two adult children, Lindsay and Evan.  In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends in whatever way she can!
