A “Scheme” is Scotland’s version of the United States housing projects and it is where you will find many of the poorest communities in Scotland. 20 Schemes is a new church planting ministry just launched that is focused on planting and revitalizing gospel churches among Scotland’s poorest communities. Here is the vision set by this ministry:
Our long term desire is to see Scotland’s housing schemes transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ through the planting of gospel-preaching churches, ultimately led by a future generation of indigenous church leaders.
The vision for this ministry came in part out of The Call Conference some of us where a part of earlier this year held in the heart of Edinburgh at Charlotte Chapel. Since then, Matthew Davison and Mez McConnell have partnered together to see this important vision become a reality.
Go to the 20 Schemes website and check out how you can serve and support. I have agreed to serve on the advisory board of this ministry and am incredibly excited about what the Lord is going to do through this ministry.
Pastors, look into it! Plenty of ways to partner and involve your people.
