As Baptists we believe that every believer has a part to play in their local church and some have a calling to work in other churches also. We encourage leadership development where appropriate for those who will serve the church in a full time capacity as well as those who will give themselves to this task after their other daily responsibilities. We work closely with the Scottish Baptist College who is able to teach to degree level as well as offering our own bespoke training for ministers, trustees and other local church leaders. Currently we have established partnerships with DNA UK for gap year leadership training, and with Urban Life for training for those working in marginal and minority communities.

#BUSleaders is used to highlight training opportunities, resources and book reviews for leaders in a variety of circumstances including continual ministerial development.
