Paul became a Christian in 2005, when God completely changed the course of his life forever when he trusted Jesus as he Lord & Saviour when he was on holiday in Bulgaria. Over a number of years of steady growth in his faith, and being discipled by his former pastor and friend – John Shearer, he began to realise that God had other plans then working for RBS for life. This culminated in Paul quitting his job in August 2013, and beginning a 2 year ministry apprenticeship programme with his Church (Musselburgh Baptist). The Bonar Trust funded him through this apprenticeship and currently funds him as he undertakes a Church Leader in Training post at Musselburgh Baptist.
Paul says, “The training that I am currently doing would not have been possible without God making provision for me – through which the Bonar Trust have played a significant role.”
