Parkway has been given a unique opportunity to partner both locally and globally as we partner with 20Schemes. Pastor Matthew Spandler-Davison of Redeemer Fellowship Church in Bardstown serves as the Executive Director of 20Schemes which exists to build healthy, gospel-preaching churches in Scotland’s poorest communities in order to bring true, sustainable, and long-term renewal to Scotland’s schemes (neighborhoods.)
Parkway appreciates the strategic plan 20Schemes has developed in order to reach people with the gospel. Priority areas are identified in attempts to partner with church revitalization efforts where possible. Furthermore, church planters, female outreach workers, and ministry apprentices are recruited to send into the identified schemes. Finally, training, resources, and support are invested in indigenous Christian leaders ensuring long-term discipleship in these areas. Each of these strategies are paramount to ensuring ongoing sustainability for healthy churches in any area.
We are convinced that our partnership with 20Schemes will not only work to advance the gospel in Scotland but, we will be given opportunities to learn a great deal about revitalization and planting in local areas to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ so that we may impact our community in a similar way in the future.
