Scripture Union is launching the leadership development programme called 10:2 for young adults to serve in a partnership arrangement with Scripture Union. It is an exciting opportunity for Trainees to serve in ministry working with and being supported by a church, an associate trust or other SU ministry partner. You can experience youth, children’s and families and/or schools ministry as well as other ministry such as e.g. publishing with SU.
This scheme is open to young people taking a year out but may equally appeal to others who are maybe wanting to explore different avenues for Christian service but with limited experience of Christian ministry outside of their own church.
Trainees are important members of the regional teams with whom they serve and are also involved in wider regional projects such as Lifepath, X:site and holidays working with SU staff in their region. The global nature of the Scripture Union movement (which serves God in over 120 countries) means that there is a mission trip as part of the programme.
Within the scheme each trainee will have a mentor and a line manager as well as support from SU. In addition to this, each trainee receives training from Cliff College or Moorlands College, where they study for a relevant qualification.
