This year marks the 25th anniversary of our Cornhill Training Course, so-called not because it was sponsored by a large insurance conglomerate, but because it started in a church building in a road called Cornhill! We’re grateful to God for what we’ve been able to achieve under his sovereign hand. I myself have much to thank God for personally, having been greatly helped during the two years I spent here (I like to call the “Golden Years” though it has not yet caught on).
Maybe this is the time to think about 2016? Perhaps you have someone in your church who would benefit from a couple of days a week? This year, we’ve even had someone from Jersey, so you may not be as out of reach as you think. Or perhaps you are a reader who has been thinking about extra training and now the moment has come? We’d love to hear from you either way.
Please also be praying for us. This time of year is when the applications ramp up and, working with local churches (we don’t make all the decisions, some are surprised to hear), we want to take on men and women who will serve the church with faithfulness and godliness. So, please pray we would have discernment in the midst of the process. There’s more information here.
