New Scripture Reader

Following our Selection and Recruitment event in July, we are pleased to announce that Steven Dougherty has been accepted as a Scripture Reader. Steven has started his Phase 1 training, which includes a one-year theological course at Cornhill London and spending time with other ASRs. He is currently shadowing ASRs Jim Henderson and Mike Blackstock at Aldershot Garrison.

I had been asking the Lord to stir my heart for mission again, and I was seeking God to know where He might call me. I had been looking periodically at some Christian vocation websites to see what opportunities there were. During my lunch break, I discovered SASRA. I hadn’t come across their mission before and was so excited to read that they were looking for Scripture Readers. I sent my wife a link to the job advert, and she replied saying, ‘This is what you have been looking for, to minister to military personnel.’ I feel so blessed to have the privilege of being a Scripture Reader.

If you have a gift or calling to personal ministry, experience of military service, and a heart for the young people of the British Armed Forces, please consider talking to us about becoming a Scripture Reader.
