Naomi Maxwell is the Discipleship Director, and lead pastor of Shoreditch, at SAINT in East London. After gaining an MA in Politics, Psychology and Sociology from the University of Cambridge, she joined Lambeth Palace as a parliamentary researcher to the Archbishop of Canterbury, before moving onto public affairs in the charity sector. Following a sense of call to ordination she did a Masters in Theology, Ministry and Mission, and loves getting to lead a church right in the heart of East London. Naomi is particularly passionate about empowering those on the margins to recognise God’s calling, so that the Church’s worship, discipleship and growth, will better reflect the Kingdom of God here on earth. When she’s not at her desk, Naomi can be found using the church hall for roller skating practice!
