Ichthus Newsletter Summer 2017

Resources. Training. Grants. ICHTHUS - SUMMER 2017 Grant case study - BENJAMIN WILKS Benjamin Wilks received a vocational grant from LWPT last year. He is currently training as a candidate for full time ministry in the Free Church of Scotland at Edinburgh Theological Seminary. ‘The bulk of the year was spent studying the Old Testament, New Testament, Scottish Church History and Systematic Theology at the seminary. We’ve also been privileged to get stuck into our church in Dunfermline, and I have had many opportunities to preach there and elsewhere over the past year. A six-week placement to a pair of churches up in the Highlands was a great chance to get involved in day-today ministry after a few years out of the daily realities of ministry while studying at college. At the end of the academic year I will graduate with a BTh in Theology and then seek a call from a congregation somewhere in Scotland. Thank you all for your generosity, we appreciate the part you have played in my studies and my journey into full-time ministry.’ Thank you to everyone who donated to our winter appeal to help equip the next generation of preachers. The appeal raised over £3000 which enables LWPT to continue supporting people like Benjamin.
