Training Hub 2019-2020

What is it?

Training Hub is a supported environment for learning and dreaming, gaining skills and stepping out. Led by the Baptist Union of Scotland, I t’s a team, a family, of like-minded people, breathing courage into one another. There will be plenty of:

Information – Teaching on a broad range of biblical, cultural, theological, leadership and personal faith subjects that are both relevant to your situation now and preparing the way for all that God might lead you on to.

Imitation – Opportunities to shadow others in a local church context (APBC), receive personal input and ‘on-the-job’ training.

Innovation – Encouragement to put knowledge and faith into practice; from simple daily rhythms to life altering decisions.

Who is it for?

“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.” (2 Timothy 2:2)

God’s kingdom grows when ordinary men and women are equipped and emboldened to live out their faith wherever God has placed them. Training Hub is designed to equip disciples to live missional lives, and is open to anyone who wants to grow in knowledge and faith, to play their part in building the Kingdom of God.
