The Christian Creative Network UK launched May 2017 in the West Midlands. It started when creative business owner, Josie Gamble, started business networking and joined a local networking group. Surprised how much she benefitted from the group both personally and in her business, Josie felt there was a need for something like this for Christian creatives to network and connect. After piloting the first branch in Wolverhampton in 2017, two more branches launched in 2018 with four more in 2019. The vision is to see branches through the UK connecting, supporting and encouraging Christian creatives.
CCN co-founder and director, Josie Gamble, has a First Class Honours degree in Industrial Product Design, has lectured for seven years at the University of Wolverhampton in Product and Interior design and has run her own graphic and web design business, Gamble Designs, since 2006.
Josie is also part of the leadership team at LifeSpring Church, Wolverhampton, of which she was a founding member, over 20 years ago in 1998, when God called her to move to the Midlands from Bath.
Josie is married to Ben who has a First Class Honours degree in Fine Art and a Masters in Printmaking. He has taught extensively within the arts in further education and is currently part of the senior team at a specialist arts college. Ben and Josie have three beautiful daughters.
Together they are passionate about championing creativity in the body of Christ.
