At Beeston Free, one of our key values is ‘Loving People’ and as part of this value we are committed to developing and training new leaders. We want to entrust God’s word to others who can teach others. We are focused not only on the leaders of today but those of tomorrow, equipping people to serve locally, nationally and internationally.
One way we develop and train new leaders is to run a full time ministry training scheme to train the next generation of gospel workers for our world, through the teaching of Bible handling skills and service.
We are looking for Christians who want to serve God and the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In particular, we are looking for:
- Christians who are committed to the importance of the Bible’s message in their own lives and to helping others come to know God and grow in Him through the message of the Bible.
- Christian maturity and gifts that would enable them to teach the Bible in groups and on a one-to-one basis.
- An eagerness to learn and to serve and a willingness to take on a variety of responsibilities and tasks around the church.
- The ability to work as part of a team, both with the other trainees, and with the rest of the church staff and congregation.
In additional we are, again, running a scheme specifically for internationals which aims to enable participants to apply the principles behind what they are learning into the cultural context of their home nation. A significant proportion of a participant’s time will be working alongside international students, so experience of living and ministering in another nation are highly desirable and as most student are of south Asian origin fluency in a south Asian language is required.
