The Principal of the Scottish School of Christian Mission is moving on …
Richard Tiplady is leaving SSCM to explore new ministry opportunities. The SSCM Board is grateful to Richard for all he has done in his role as Principal of International Christian College and Scottish School of Christian Mission over the past 7 years and wish him well for the future.
One of Richard’s legacies is the excellent team he has built up and the work of SSCM will progress next session led by Dr Brodie McGregor while a replacement for Richard is sought. The Board is excited about the future of SSCM and looks forward to welcoming our returning students in September, plus a new intake of BA(Hons) in Theology (Youth and Community) students, as well as those starting on the Urban Mission and Transforming Leadership pathways of the MA in Theology programme.
Richard will continue to pursue his doctoral research into the development of entrepreneurial leadership in the Scottish church. His connection with SSCM (and our partner, the Nazarene Theological College) will also continue as visiting lecturer for the MA in Theology (Transforming Leadership), teaching and supervising students on this pathway.
