Our People

“When we bring our faces close to the mosaic, we can admire the beauty of each stone. But as we step back from it, we can see that all these little stones reveal to us a beautiful picture, telling a story none of these stones can tell by itself.” - Henri Nouwen

This page is not just about the ‘success stories’ that we see here at Jericho Road, but rather it is the story of us. It is who we are. Our people. Our history. Our future. Our success. Our mistakes.

 

Together, we are the ties that bind. Celebrate life with us as we share the journey of Jericho Road through the things that make us - our people.
