Firstly, the year is about service – in practice and theory. As well as your work, there will be a focus on discipleship. A year at Abernethy is a great opportunity to grow in your faith, to deepen your relationship with Christ and to learn about God and share him with our guests.
Through the year there will be times set aside for teaching, both spiritual and practical. These will include team fellowship on a weekly basis, a conference with the teams from all the Abernethy centres, as well as opportunities to attend other conferences and training courses held at the Abernethy centres.
In an ideal world, we would be keen for the following criteria to be met by the successful candidate:
Abernethy's vision is to provide exceptional outdoor adventure experiences where our guests can discover more about themselves, others and God.
We are looking for a hands-on team player who has a good level of initiative and wants to be a part of this vision. First and foremost, we are looking for people who want to serve God in this kind of outreach, so your Christian Faith will be evident in your life.
Abernethy is a group of 4 residential adventure centres and a bunkhouse in Scotland and we are all about living life to the full with God and sharing outdoor adventures. Through our centres in the beautiful wilds of Scotland and a staff team motivated by their Christian faith, we aim to create the very best experiences for each and every guest.
