We, the members of the Scottish Baptist Lay Preachers’ Association, covenant together, as we journey towards 2020, to being a growing network that:-

1. Intentionally invests in the next generation of lay preachers’ by identifying, encouraging, training and developing the gifts of young men and women within our churches.

2. Strategically supports resource-needy churches, primarily Scottish Baptist churches, through the forging of meaningful relationships and the provision of systematic preaching and teaching.

3. Actively raises awareness of its ministries to all Scottish Baptist churches through personal contact and an effective digital presence.

4. Understands the changing moral landscape and preaches biblically, boldly and prophetically into the culture to help shape it.

5. Broadens its horizons by strengthening existing relationships and being discerning relative to the potential of new opportunities.

6. Increasingly invests in the development of its members through the provision of tailored opportunities for learning and relationships.

7. Recognises the growing pressures among its members in family, church and work responsibilities, and is committed to offering meaningful pastoral care where appropriate.
