Because of the current lockdown restrictions we are obviously unable to publicly celebrate the achievements of our 2020 Graduates – at least for the time being. We are hopeful of being able to do so later in the year. In the meantime, we are featuring our 7 graduates of 2020 and commending them to your prayers. Perhaps, as you read their stories, you could see yourself as an EBC Graduate in 2021 or 2022! Why not get in touch with us and explore possibilities.
Joshua Truesdale (from Northern Ireland)
Joshua has graduated with a Licentiate in Theology (with Distinction), having successfully completed our new Advanced Ministry Apprenticeship Programme (AMAP). This is a 9 month vocational training programme, conducted in diverse ministry settings under the leadership of EBC and external mentors. (More details here)
“My placements in Rathfriland Baptist (NI) and Falkirk Free Church of Scotland were of great benefit to me. I gained experience in areas I hadn’t yet had, confidence in both my giftings and assurance of my calling, and encouragement from the people I ministered with. It all suddenly came to an abrupt pause and end, but it was a very worthwhile year. I appreciate your prayers as I seek God’s next step for my life. I have some ‘draft ideas’ as to what that may be, but I’m sure we’ve all learned over recent months that ‘My ways and thoughts are not your ways and thoughts.’ (Psalm 116:12)”
