Meet our team

Michael and Serene Duah

Michael is the Youth Pastor of Emmanuel Community Church (ECC) and host of WAVED conference. He is married to Serene and they lead the exciting and vibrant youth ministry of ECC, YouthWAVE. Set in Walthamstow, a small town in East London. YouthWAVE stands for youth with a vision of eternity. Its heartbeat is to help young people honour God with a vibrant Christian faith, to influence change in their community and world; to support and encourage each other; build strong moral foundations for their generation and to fully use their gifts and experiences to serve Christ.

Michael has had the privilege of travelling around the world sharing the truth of Christ’s saving message in such places such as Poland, Ghana, South Africa and Trenchtown, Jamaica. He is passionate about lost people coming in to relationship with Jesus and realising their potential in God.

Serene is passionate about broken lives and works with young girls who have been sexually exploited. Her desire is that they encounter God so that they can find worth, wholeness and purpose. Together they are a formiddable team and incredible leaders!
