Faculty & Staff

One of the key distinctives of Edinburgh Bible College is that the teaching will be done, not by professional academics but by practitioners, men and women who are, on a day-to-day basis, engaged in a range of ministries. This keeps our training grounded in reality and also provides great role models for those we are equipping for ministry.

We have a growing list of gifted, enthusiastic and experienced teachers and trainers, all of whom have readily endorsed our doctrinal basis and who will be involved in the work of the College at different times.
