Lee Whitecross

Lee joined Gillespie at the beginning of 2021 with almost ten years of voluntary youth work experience. He lives with his wife Ashley in Edinburgh.

His faith in Christ was born through God meeting him on the Youth Alpha course as a 16-year-old lad who was lost without direction, walking with no purpose and had many unanswered questions. Lee believes his life now has a new found purpose in Christ full of direction and answers. However, Lee is naturally curious and always has questions. Lee has had many unique opportunities to serve God and proclaim his faith over the years and looks forward to many more to come.

Lee is passionate about helping young people realise their full value and worth, empathising with the struggles young people face today and he believes all young people have great potential and talent that should be celebrated and encouraged.

Lee is certain there is no one who loves football more than he does and challenges anyone to beat him in game of football trivia. He is a passionate supporter of Hibernian Football Club and enjoys playing football as much as he possibly can. Other than football Lee loves driving and listening to his music – there is no genre of music Lee does not enjoy.
