Naomi Entwistle (Scotland)

Graduated with a Diploma in Theology in 2017

I live in Edinburgh with my husband, Pete, and our daughter, Faith.  I took a year out of my training as a junior doctor to do a diploma in theology at EBC, initially “in person”, and then finishing online: I really appreciated the flexibility of EBC’s approach to learning.  I particularly valued the hermeneutics, homiletics and Biblical Overview modules that I studied at EBC, which have significantly honed my Bible teaching skills, and whose notes I still refer to on a fairly regular basis! Since graduating I have been pursuing my dual calling to both medicine and church ministry, and am part of the leadership team at Community Church Edinburgh, where I preach regularly.  I am passionate about drilling down deep into both God’s Story and the story of those around me, and seeing the Holy Spirit’s transforming work as the two are brought together.  I also love meeting and learning from brothers and sisters from different church backgrounds and denominations, even when we disagree on secondary matters!
