Brodie McGregor BSc, BA (Hons), MTh, PhD (Edinburgh)
NTC Glasgow Learning Centre Academic Dean
My early childhood was spent less than two miles from the Glasgow Learning Centre in the Gallowgate and wandering around the area brings flashbacks of a happy childhood in the East End of Glasgow.
I worked for a number of years in the construction industry as a quantity surveyor before deciding to study theology. After graduating with a BA (Hon) in Theology I worked as a youth pastor for a large Baptist church in the south side of Glasgow. I was drawn back to academia and left my position as youth pastor to study at the University of Edinburgh for a MTh in Theological Ethics and then a PhD under the supervision of Prof Oliver O’Donovan. My thesis title was Suffering and Political Thought: A theological consideration of the propriety of suffering as a category in political thought.
I still attend the church for whom I worked as youth pastor and now serve on their Senior Leadership Team.
I am married to Alison and have three sons. I enjoy cooking and once helped cook jambalaya in a car park in New Orleans for about 1,500 people
I am a season ticket holder at Glasgow Warriors, and can often be found wandering up a Munro (a Scottish hill over 3,000 ft).
