The Trust has focussed on developing pathways for training.
An individual is enrolled in a two-year Apprenticeship or Associate programme in a local church alongside external study at, for example, Cornhill Training Course.
An individual is enrolled in a three or four year leader in training programme in a local church alongside study at, for example, Edinburgh Theological Seminary, Cornhill Pastors’ Training Course or Crosslands Training
The Trust supports two Leader in Training pathways:
- Church Leader Training (also referred to as Minister or Pastor in Training)
- Women in Ministry Training.
For many people there is a period between Basic and Advanced Training. This could be working either in a secular job, or in a ministry role, e.g. youth worker, student worker of UCCF staff worker.
