The McLoughlan family
“I am excited to introduce you to Scotland, a land that has great natural beauty, a vibrant culture, and a rich Christian heritage. Scotland was once known as the land of the book. We will visit sites that were pivotal to the Scottish reformation which unleashed a gospel resurgence in Scotland. Come and experience the sites and sounds of the nation that gave us John Knox, David Livingstone, and Eric Liddell. But also come face to face with modern Scotland. A bold, confident, and yet spiritually dark land. Very few in Scotland have a personal relationship with Jesus today and this is especially true in Scotland’s poorest communities. We will meet with church planters who are seeking to build healthy gospel preaching churches. Come and hear their stories, pray with them, and be part of what God is doing in Scotland today.”
Dr. Matthew Spandler-Davison, co-founder and Executive Director of 20schemes
