Meet the Team

Jamie Sewell 

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.

Theresa Williams

Theresa is a trained Graphic Designer who spent the last 5 years working on the print and packaging production worldwide for Electronic Arts Computer Games as well as being part of Eden Ladbroke Grove and living on the Lancaster West Estate. She’s now full time for Message West London managing the development and strategy including branding, marketing, prayer and events. 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 Vincent

David is the newest member of the London Hub team, joining as an Eden Network Coach. Moving to London to go to university he fell in love with the city and is passionate about it being transformed. Living in North London with his wife and two teenaged children, David, in addition to being a part-time teacher, has been heavily involved in prayer across London for 18 years. 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. As the London Eden Network Coach he will be training and coaching Eden team leaders and members across the city.

‘I have such a respect for the sacrificial incarnational mission occurring through Eden and pioneer missionaries, that being able to assist them in this new role is a privilege.’
