Rooted Teens Team: Grant Dietrich, Gabrielle and Austin Wright
Grant moved to the Raleigh, NC area in 2017 to be closer to his girlfriend who is now his wife Yijia Dietrich. He is from Harrisburg, PA and has been in North Carolina on and off since 2013. He enjoys reading books in his spare time and is passionate about learning about Theology and Church History. Grant and his wife have been attending Rooted since the fall of 2020.
Outside of Church and home life Grant works in the information technology field in a hospital environment. He has been employed in information technology since 2013 and has an A/S in Information Science Technology from Penn State. He is currently working on B/A in East Asian Studies at University Maryland Global Campus and is scheduled to graduate Spring 2022.
Michigan natives, Gabrielle and Austin Wright found themselves in sunny southern California for 5 years before moving to Raleigh in June 2021. They are both English teachers and love getting to spend more time with students on Sunday mornings with Rooted Teens! They are expecting their first baby (girl!) in May and are equal parts nervous/excited about becoming parents! In her free time, Gabrielle enjoys running and keeping up with her pen pals while Austin enjoys racquetball and strategy board games. They both love ultimate frisbee and Lord of the Rings! Gabrielle and Austin are blessed to be a part of the Gospel-centered community that is Rooted Church!
