Josh, Operations Manager
Josh and Emma live at the community house with their 4 year old daughter Ella. The Crick de Boom's moved to Leicester in December 2019 when Josh started working as the Bishop of Leicester's Research Assistant. During this time they got involved with the community and explored becoming companions. Emma is the Reconciliation Enabler for Coventry Diocese, working in partnership with The Reconciling Leaders Network, Lambeth Palace.
Josh comes from Essex, where he grew up in a large family. Josh found his own faith at L'abri fellowship in the UK in 2008. Since then he has been exploring different ways of living in Christian community, something he is deeply passionate about. After completing his theological studies, Josh spent a year as a research intern with Tim Chester. He and Emma then moved to Bristol, where they worked with a fledgling Church plant and got involved in a Christian community house network. They helped develop rhythms of prayer, worship and discipleship.
In December 2018, Josh & Emma felt like it was time to leave and went on an adventure as a family to Switzerland, to live and help out at L'abri fellowship. They were there for six months discerning God's ministry for them and returned to UK and shortly after arrived in Leicester.
Josh is a bit of a theology nerd, a coffee fanatic and a foodie, he enjoys cooking and playing silly games with Ella. If ever your in the city Centre and want a brew and a chat about Soren Kierkegaard, Josh is your man!
