Charlotte Chapel, a big and busy church in the heart of Edinburgh, is looking to recruit 3 new MINISTRY TRAINEES to join the team in August 2019.
The Programme provides an ideal opportunity for those considering pastoral ministry, church planting, women's ministry and other areas of paid/supported gospel work.
The MAP contains three main elements:
1) We want you walking worthily, so we focus on developing CHARACTER. You'll have mentorship all the way through.
2) We want you thinking theologically, so we tailor a training programme to help you establish core CONVICTION. Part of that includes up to 12 hours a week doing things like Cornhill Scotland part time, not to mention our in-house training.
3) We want you serving practically, so we plug you into the wide-ranging ministry opportunities that Charlotte Chapel provides in order to develop COMPETENCE. We not only seek to see what you can do but help you do it better.
