What People are Saying

Edinburgh Summer School

A chance to fill your mind, and heart, and soul with the goodness of God, His Word, His people, in an environment that reflects that beauty- inside and outside the seminary.


God has once again been firmly reminding me that ministry is so much about relationships with other people — I have been particularly challenged to “feed” people rather than “feed off” them.

Edinburgh Summer School

“This week has been a real gift from the Lord to me. Being able to step out of normal responsibilities (which I love) and immersing myself in the Word amidst congenial company and surroundings has been so refreshing.
