Our Vision

The Bonar Trust passionately believes that Scotland needs more gospel workers who will share the good news of Jesus Christ. The primary purpose of the Trust is to provide funding for the ministry training of these workers.
Apprenticeships and Church Leader in Training positions are, we believe, the key components in creating a pathway to ministry – training grounded in the local church in partnership with external training providers like Cornhill Scotland and Edinburgh Theological Seminary.  Since its launch the Bonar Trust has funded more than 20 apprentices training in Edinburgh, Glasgow, St Andrew’s, Stirling, Dundee and the Highlands.
While it is encouraging to see Apprenticeship and Church Leader in Training Programmes established in churches, numbers small and much more work needs to done. As we look to expand the work, the Trust’s financial resources are now the limiting factor.  If you would like to consider supporting the work of the Trust financially you can find out more here.  Over the next couple of months we will be profiling some of the individuals we have supported and the ways they have benefited from the Trust.
