The academic year at the Scottish Baptist College came to a conclusion in the first week of May with a service and lunch at Thomas Coates church, Paisley. Students led worship and Rev. Dr Carol Campbell, lead chaplain with NHS Glasgow and honorary chaplain to the College gave the address which encouraged us to keep going through tough times and failures, and never give up, because God never gives up on us.
We said farewell to a number of students who are moving on to ministry and mission in this country and overseas and the overwhelming impression was of the significance of being called by God to give it all for the sake of the kingdom; to live for the Gospel and not to count the cost. Iona came from Orkney to Paisley and is going to teach in Ethiopia, and Robert came from Northern Ireland and is looking to settle in a Baptist Church in Scotland, and Ron came from Broughty Ferry and is moving to New Zealand, and Alasdair is working with TEAR Fund.
God is still summoning people to join the team, and the Scottish Baptist College is a great place to get ready for the task. Thank you for your support for another year, and now we look forward to a new group of students starting the journey to becoming a person of Gospel impact.
Ian Birch, Principal.
