Professor Andrew Clarke has been appointed as a temporary (one-year) part-time post, agreed by the Baptist Union of Scotland Council, to ensure we maintain the momentum of Continuing Ministry Development (CMD). Andrew Clarke, from Garioch Church in Aberdeenshire, brings significant experience of teaching and training as a theological educator for many years (he is an emeritus professor of Aberdeen University) and he has been at the heart of church leadership in traditional and experimental forms of church for decades.
He leads our BUS Peaceful Transformations Team and is a member of the Board of Ministry so understands well the ways and culture of our Union. The panel shared a strong sense that the Lord has equipped him for this role and this is the right time for him to serve in this way.
He started his post with BUS on 9th September 2019.
