We are excited to announce the ‘Young Leaders Conference’ taking place this Autumn alongside the Baptist Union of Scotland assembly. This year we are partnering with our friends at Onelife to bring the emerging leaders of Scotland two days of exploring Godly leadership and encountering the transforming love of Jesus.

For the last 10 years our good friends at Onelife have been running young leaders conferences that have impacted thousands of young people across the UK, to inspire them to lead for Jesus in whatever sphere of society he calls them into. We are excited to be joining them in offering this conference as a way of investing in the emerging generation of christian leaders here in Scotland. Our prayer is that many would ‘rise up’ to be exceptional Godly leaders bringing kingdom influence wherever they find themselves.

This conference is for 14-21 year olds.

Book now and join us on the 1st & 2nd November
