The Hillsong United song, Oceans, has become popular in recent years and contains the refrain: “Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander.” The song resonates with many as they strive for a deeper understanding of God in their life. Though it might seem like life at the Scottish Baptist College is all about hours spent in the library writing essays, the real heart of SBC is to help people discern and discover their calling and to be enriched and equipped for their vocation. We look to explore that deeper walk with God.
At our end of term service we heard from four of our graduating students, each going on to do very different things. Rebecca is going on to pursue ministry in the Salvation Army; Victoria is heading back to university – this time for teacher training; Sam is going to be part of the new Eden community in the Hillhead area of Kirkintilloch; and Ally is hoping to continue his call to ministry over the next year.
Ally writes: ‘Studying at SBC has helped me to think both broader and deeper in areas that I might not have naturally considered. It has equipped me with a tool-kit that I know I will refer back to. In particular, I benefited from the work-based learning placements which has enabled me to sharpen my sense of call to ministry and has put me on the path to applying for accredited ministry within the Baptist Union of Scotland.’
If you’re looking for the next step or feeling challenged to go deeper, then SBC could be a great place to start the search!
