The vision of the Bonar Trust is investing in training the next generation of leaders for the church in Scotland.
The trustees welcome applications from individuals on an Apprenticeship Programme or Minister in Training Programmes in a church in Scotland.
Each week we’re introducing you to different people supported by the Bonar Trust. This week we meet Drew Kennedy, a second-year Apprentice at Bruntsfield Evangelical Church in Edinburgh.
“Coming to train for ministry from paid employment and with a family to look after would have been essentially impossible without the ongoing financial support of the Bonar Trust. It’s continual support has allowed me to invest time in my training and to reap the maximum benefit, rather than seeking to finish as quickly as possible due to financial pressures. I am certain this training has set good foundations in place for a lifetime of ministry. The personal support and encouragement of those at the Trust has also been a great help.”
“Leaving a full-time teaching job to start the ministry associate programme was made much easier through the support of the Bonar Trust. It meant financial concerns were less of a worry and I could concentrate on my training.”
