A new youth development manager has been appointed by the Scottish Bible Society to encourage young people to engage with the dynamic work of this nearly 200-year old charity.
Fiona Baker (29) comes originally from Anstruther. Married to Brian, she spent eight years working in America before settling in Edinburgh. She studied divinity at Aberdeen University and went on to become a youth and college minister.
“Living with the iPod generation means the Bible is increasingly faced with the ‘boring and irrelevant’ label. So I face a really exciting challenge!” she says.
“I am thrilled to get stuck into the work of helping young people engage and interact with the Bible and its message, and the work of the Scottish Bible Society. I long to see young people captivated with the goldmine of adventure, poetry, history, gripping narrative, and brilliant imagery that makes up the story of God. My great hope is that we will increasingly see teenagers, students, and young adults taking the mission of the Society to heart and engaging in the work of getting the Bible and its message out to people across the globe.”
