People have said of Martin Johnstone that if he had chosen to work in the private sector he would have become a very rich man. Martin isn't so sure and reckons that he would more likely have ended up broke. Whatever the truth, he has chosen to use his skills and creativity over the last 20 years to work with faith communities tackling poverty across Scotland. In Bellshill, where he was a Church of Scotland minister for ten years in the 90s, the local congregation developed a community centre catering for over 2,000 visitors a week. Since then, he has coordinated the Church of Scotland's work in its poorest neighbourhoods across Scotland, a role he combines with being Chief Executive of Faith in Community Scotland - an anti-poverty organisation working with faith communities across the country. Each of these areas of work are now effective businesses which, in turn, have generated many more groups and organisations tackling poverty the length and breadth of Scotland. Martin says of himself: "I don't know that I am very good at many things. However, the one thing I know I can do is to believe in other people's dreams and to help them to turn those dreams into reality."

Rev. Dr. Martin Johnstone will talk with First Presbyterian Church members on the evening of Friday, November 2. Martin, an ordained minister of the Church of Scotland (Presbyterian), served for 11 years as a parish minister in one of Scotland's economically poorest neighborhoods. He was then appointed to a national role within the Church.
His work is in four main areas: He coordinates the Church of Scotland's work within the poorest 5% of neighborhoods in Scotland. Over the last decade the Church of Scotland has had a deliberate policy of significantly increasing resources in its poorest communities, for example, in doubling the levels of staffing in priority area parishes. He is the voluntary Chief Executive of Faith in Community Scotland - an anti-poverty agency which resources faith groups to tackle poverty. Since it was established in 2005, FiCS has worked with over 200 faith groups to assist them to turn their aspirations for change into practical action. It operates in Scotland's poorest communities, with dedicated teams in Glasgow and Dundee. You can find out more about Faith in Community Scotland at:
Martin also facilitates the work of Scotland's Poverty Truth Commission ( Over the last three years, the Commission has brought together some of Scotland's poorest citizens with some of its most influential to advocate for changes in the way that the symptoms and causes of poverty are addressed. At the heart of the Commission's message is the clear assertion that poverty will never be adequately understood and addressed until those who experience it are helping to shape, deliver and evaluate anti-poverty policy.
If all of that is not enough, Martin chairs Glasgow's Third Sector Forum which brings together the city's 2,400 charities, social enterprises and volunteering agencies. He is currently coordinating the development of an integrated anti-poverty strategy for Glasgow - Scotland's poorest city.

By pure chance today at the Stony Point Center, we were lucky enough to run into Rev. Martin Johnstone of the Church of Scotland, a pastor, denominational staff person, and activist doing amazing work on poverty on the other side of the pond. He said that the Church of Scotland has recognized poverty as "the Gospel imperative for the Church."
