At 12 years old Jamie’s family was radically transformed by an encounter with Jesus. As he grew in his new found faith Jamie developed passion to share the gospel. On his 18 birthday he started volunteering in Onley young ofender’s institute where his passion for the most vulnerable in society deepened. After 2 years at Onley Jamie started working for Rugby YFC. Over the next 7 years Jesus moved powerfully in Rugby as they saw hundreds of young people respond to follow Jesus. In March 2011 Jamie and his wife Becci moved to Ladbroke Grove to set up London’s second Eden Team. Nearly 6 years later and Jamie’s conviction to see a Jesus movement in London’s most challenging areas has become all consuming. He’s now leading the Message Hub in West London.

As a Londoner, Theresa’s heart is to see the capital’s toughest communities reached with the good news of Jesus in creative ways.

David’s heart for community transformation led him to pray and support those on the frontline of mission and it is through this that he became aware of the Eden Network in London.
