The Christian Creative Network UK launched May 2017 in the West Midlands. It started when creative business owner, Josie Gamble, sitting in a business networking event, was impressed with the need for Christian creatives to network. With the success of the pilot branch in Wolverhampton, more branches have since launched. The vision is to see branches through the UK connecting, supporting and encouraging Christian creatives. We are excited to be launching the Christian Creative Directory in 2020 which will provide an online platform for businesses and the Church to find Christian creative services.
CCN 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 creative business, Gamble Designs, since 2006.
Josie has also been involved in church leadership since 1998 when she relocated from Bath to be part of a pioneering new church congregation in Wolverhampton. She has lead various teams and ministries over the past 20 years but feels championing that creativity in the body of Christ is what she is called to do and is focussing her efforts on building CCN and serving the creative community.
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 leadership team at a specialist arts college.
Ben and Josie have three beautiful daughters and together they are passionate about championing creativity in the body of Christ.
