Elyse Murphy is a writer, pastor, and international speaker. She is driven by her passion for Jesus, the local church and knowing the lyrics to every Taylor Swift song. Elyse is ministering to people with her honest message of hope and grace founded in Jesus Christ.

Having grown up as a pastor’s kid in Sydney, Australia, Elyse graduated from Hillsong Leadership College, and has been a pastor working with young people and young leaders ever since. She has ministered globally in both church and secular settings, inspiring people in their life and challenging them in their faith.

Her experiences of life growing up as a PK led Elyse to write her first book “Confessions of a Church Kid.” Her book is a memoir of the good, bad and ugly of growing up with parents in ministry and all that it entails. Elyse regularly blogs for Propel Women, She Rises, Assemblies of God and others.

These days Elyse calls Los Angeles home, working with young adults and leaders, and ministering as one of the pastors at Oasis Church in Downtown Los Angeles.
