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, over the next few days we will feature our 7 graduates of 2020 and commend 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.
Ryan has graduated with 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)
Ryan says, “I joined EBC in September 2017 and have benefitted immensely from my experience there and my placement fellowship, Grace Community Church, Broxburn. The opportunity to serve there and put into practice the gifts that God has given me has been a great blessing.
Honing those gifts with the knowledge gained in the Diploma course and AMAP through various aspects of ministry have helped my development and prepared me well for future ministry. This was in no small part due to the vast ministry experience of the teaching staff in the college which provided access to a wealth of biblical knowledge and practical ministry wisdom to learn from.
One of the stand out qualities of the college was the flexibility that enabled me to learn around some difficult personal circumstances. It really exemplified a level of grace that I found humbling and I am grateful to God for my time at both EBC and GCC.
We would really appreciate your prayers for a ministry opportunity suitable for myself and my family.”
