JJ Hussem

Formation Coordinator at SPEC, Westminster Youth Ministry

To be employed in youth ministry within the diocese of Westminster, which includes much of bustling London, has been an opportunity and a huge blessing. We find ourselves in the heart of the new evangelisation in the biggest European city with the challenge and potential of advancing the Kingdom through the activities, events, interactions, formation and retreats that we do – underpinned by prayer. I am excited by the opportunities presented to me to take on more responsibility professionally within the mission here as we transition into residential retreats. Additionally, I am grateful for the freedom given as a team to grapple with the Holy Spirit to see where it is He longs to lead SPEC as a retreat centre for our Westminster young people and formation house for our missionaries.
