Passing the baton
In March 2018 Jubilee had it’s first handover of senior leadership. Previously led, for over 20 years, by Eric & Pat Whittaker who felt it was the right time for them, along with their team to step aside and hand over the leadership to a new generation of leaders who carried the vision and had the calling to take the work forward .
Russel & Nicci Whittaker are happily married and have three young children. In March 2018 they took on the role of Senior Leaders. Together they lead Jubilee overseeing the spiritual side of the church as well as the daily workings of Jubilee Church Life Centre. Together they want to see the Kingdom of God impact the local community and see families and lives transformed by the love and power of God.
Russel has worked as a builder/ joiner for over 20 years and has spent the last 6 years renovating the Centre. He is looking forward to being able to put down his tools and step into his new role. Russel meets weekly to pray with other church leaders within the town.
Nicci works full time as the Centre Manager organising the daily running, administration and teams within the Centre and church as well as overseeing a number of community projects.
They are both keen runners, enjoy going on caravan holidays with their children and appreciate a good cup of fresh coffee!
Russel & Nicci are supported by a wider team of people who operate within different areas of the church.
