Revd Jess Swift is Associate Tutor at St Mellitus College. She is also the Associate Vicar at St Andrew's Church, in the Barnsbury Team in Islington. This has been the perfect place to develop her passion and interest in collaborative, inner city ministry. Jess is originally from the East Coast of Canada and did her first degree in Forestry and Environmental Management. She trained for ordination at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. She has been living and ministering in the East of London for fifteen years. She is also the Dean of Women's Ministry in Stepney. Jess is committed to the encouragement and development of all vocations, and most recently has been considering the shape of female entrepreneurial leadership in the church. Jess loves living in London, bouncing on the trampoline with her godsons, and a good cocktail.
