Scottish School of Christian Mission
Our staff combine a thorough grounding in theology and professional practice with practical experience of a life led by mission.
Academic Dean and Team Leader
A former quantity surveyor and youth pastor at Queens Park Baptist Church in Glasgow, Brodie's strong commitment to theological education is shown by his depth of study and research. His desire to connect this to Christian ministry has been expressed through his service as Winter Night Shelter Team Leader at Glasgow City Mission and as a Team Leader at Glasgow Street Pastors. His research interests surround those at the margins of society, including issues of suffering, poverty, economics and social policy.
He is married to Alison and they have three sons. He enjoys cooking and once helped to cook jambalaya in a car park in New Orleans for 1500 people (after Hurricane Katrina). He is a season ticket holder for Glasgow Warriors and a qualified rugby coach. Originally from the East End of Glasgow, he describes being based in the college's offices at Parkhead as "something of a homecoming".
BA(Hons) in Theology (First Class)
Master of Theology (University of Edinburgh)
PhD in Political Theology (University of Edinburgh), on a theological consideration of the propriety of suffering as a category in political thought.

He maintains a keen interest in community-based and community-run libraries and consults on the development of libraries in both the UK and low-income countries. Away from librarianship he often finds himself listening to the blues, watching B-Movies (usually starring Bela Lugosi) and wandering aimlessly in the USA.
