Into all the world

In this new Oak Hill booklet, eight former Oak Hill students tell their stories of Christian ministry today, from cities, towns and villages across the UK. These stories of ministry come from the inner cities of Edinburgh, Leith and Brixton, the leafy commuter village of Lindfield, as well as from churches and projects in Kempston, Barrow-in-Furness, Shepherd’s Bush and Westminster.

Each of these gospel workers took time while they were in college to study God's word, grow in faith, become equipped for ministry, and to be rooted in Christ. They took time to ask themselves, how can I become the best possible gift for Christ to give to his church? Robin Ham, who works with his wife Zoe in pioneer ministry at a church in Barrow-in-Furness, uses a striking image to describe the radical flexibility of his theological training in preparing him for ministry in different situations. He says:

'The training I received at Oak Hill has been completely practical. It's like the difference between a train and a Land Rover. The train is stuck on the tracks. It can't really go anywhere else, but the Land Rover is adaptable. It can drive on any terrain. What I received from my time at Oak Hill is the ability to come to a new place, listen to the community, and serve in a completely new context.'
