Pete is one of the founding champions of the 24-7 Prayer movement and leads Emmaus Rd with Sammy. They live in Guildford with their two sons, and their two dogs, Noodle & Crumble. Pete is an ambassador for the NGO Tearfund and served for seven years on the senior leadership team of HTB in London. Pete is a renowned author and his books include Red Moon Rising, God on Mute and Dirty Glory. He loves live music, decent coffee, Portsmouth FC and art galleries. He’s happiest climbing mountains, knocking down walls or whizzing around the local country lanes in his 1964 Morris Minor convertible.
Sammy became a Christian just up the road from Guildford at the age of seventeen. Working together in team ministry since they were first married more than 20 years ago, Sammy & Pete have planted two churches. With a background in business, Sammy is a proud mum to two teenage boys, and can often be found reading highbrow books in quiet corners of local coffee shops. Less impressively, she admits to having watched the Bridget Jones movie more than thirty times, and to having once been lead singer in a pub covers band.
Bill is married to Nici and they have three sons. Before joining Emmaus Rd he worked as a curate under Bishop Sandy Millar and was involved in planting a church in inner city London. This was followed by five years serving on the leadership team at HTB where he founded the Furnace, a community of intercessors committed to fulfilling the vision of non stop prayer in HTB’s 24-7 Prayer room, which he oversaw for two and a half years. He is passionate about people encountering the presence of God. And Fulham FC! Bill loves good stories.
Nici keeps Emmaus Rd running! When not in the office or looking after her three boys she will be found taking on the Surrey Hills in preparation for her next triathlon. Her background is in marketing and operations with experience working for large corporations, starts ups and charities. She loves anything competitive and a good coffee.
After five remarkable years travelling around Europe with her husband Scot and their two children, Misty returned to teaching. She now heads up Matrix, a local Christian charity providing a lifeline and life-changing opportunities for some of the most disadvantaged young people across Guildford.
Scot is married to Misty and, together with their two children, they spent five years living and working in Eastern Europe before returning to the UK in 2010. Scot helps to lead the human rights organisation Christian Solidarity Worldwide. A rather slow, but enthusiastic, long distance runner you can find Scot running the Surrey Hills in his spare time.
