Ian Reid is the 3TRUSTS Scholarship Coordinator and has been
appointed to serve the movement through supporting the Hillview, Lichfield Lands and Longview Trusts with the David Bay Evangelism Scholarship, the JH Baldwin Scholarship and the Matt Alexander Scholarship. At the heart of each scholarship is the desire to see:
The right people… These are leaders who have the scriptural character qualities of Elders. They will place a very high value on the Bible, the cross, conversion and serving society. They’ll be able to teach the Bible, shepherd, serve, and disciple.
Studying in the right institutions… These training institutions will prepare our leaders for the multicultural secular New Zealand that is coming. They will establish our leaders in the Scriptures, they will place a significant emphasis on expository preaching to a multicultural secularizing society, and they will help our leaders disciple leaders in the home, ministry and the marketplace.
And heading into the right places… We want to support the people we’ve invested into, to be placed in the right ministry context for them, for us as a network of churches and ultimately for the growth of the gospel in New Zealand.
