Brodie McGregor appointed as Academic Dean
We are pleased to announce that Brodie McGregor has been appointed as the new Academic Dean of Scottish School of Christian Mission. As the successor to Graeme McMeekin, Brodie will be responsible for the leadership, oversight and management of all the college’s courses in Scotland, whether the undergraduate and postgraduate courses offered through our collaboration with Nazarene Theological College or the SQA-accredited courses like the HNC Working with Communities.
Originally from the East End of Glasgow, where the college is now located, Brodie has a first-class BA(Hons) in Theology from International Christian College and an MTh and PhD from the University of Edinburgh. His PhD research in political theology gave consideration to the propriety of suffering as a category in political thought. A former quantity surveyor and youth pastor at Queens Park Baptist Church in Glasgow, Brodie also served as a visiting lecturer in theology at ICC. We are delighted that he is now able to join the college’s leadership team on a permanent basis, starting in early April.
Brodie commented, “I am delighted to be joining the team at SSCM as Academic Dean and am excited about the opportunity to shape the academic programmes of the school and to work with the students, lecturers and staff. I am looking forward to being part of a great team that will help train and equip people as they seek to serve God faithfully and be a blessing to the church and their communities”.
SSCM Principal Richard Tiplady added, “Brodie’s intelligence, acumen and commitment to creative theological education are a great addition to the leadership of the college. We look forward very much to the contribution he will make to the future shape of SSCM and its role in serving and equipping Christians to make the good news of Jesus Christ known in Scotland today”.
