Emmanuel Gill

Team Leader in Harrow

"We aim to mobilise churches so multiple teams can reach out to their communities"

Emmanuel was born into a Christian family in Pakistan. He regularly went to church and Sunday school but he didn’t come into a saving faith until one church service, when he was challenged about having his name written in the book of life. At the age of 17 Emmanuel invited Jesus into his heart and was discipled by good Christian friends.

It was at Belfast Bible College that Emmanuel encountered John Nicholls (CEO of London City Mission at the time) who invited him to come visit London. After volunteering at the mission, Emmanuel followed God’s calling and became a missionary. Emmanuel went on to live and serve in Morden and Greenwich before moving to Harrow in 2012, where he now works as a missionary team leader.

"More than a quarter of a million people live in Harrow and our heart is that everyone has the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel. Due to the vastness of the task, we aim to mobilise churches so multiple teams can reach out to their communities."

South Asians are the largest minority ethnic group in Harrow and most of them are from an Indian Hindu background.  There is also a large community of Muslims. Emmanuel leads a team of missionaries to envision, equip and mobilise churches in Harrow to reach them with the gospel.

They have provided Hindu Evangelism Training, to help local Christinas understand the typical beliefs of Hindus, and how to bring Jesus into the conversation.

Emmanuel loves going out for walks, runs and cycle rides.  He also enjoys playing Chess.
