About Andy Bathgate

Andy became CEO of SU Scotland in 2001 having worked with the Christian Unions in the Scottish Universities and Colleges for the previous 20 years. His first involvement with SU was when a friend invited him to the SU Group in Musselburgh Grammar School. Later, he became part of a team from the Grammar School that led the SU Group in a local primary. That was in the early 1970s, and he remains as committed to the ministry of SU now as then. He is particularly concerned that SU's ministry serves the local church and the disadvantaged and is done in partnership wherever possible. He is married to Alyson. Their elder daughter Fiona is married to David and they have two grandsons, Ellis and Brodie. Karyn, their younger daughter, attends a nearby day centre for people with additional needs. In their spare time, Andy and Alyson can often be found strolling around an art gallery.

Phil Stogner - Mission To The World

This week David Meredith welcomes Phil Stogner from Mission To The World to the podcast.

Episode Topics:

- Missionaries - Mission - Evangelism - Church Planting - Mormonism - Pastors Coaching Pastors - Revitalisation

About Phil and Wendy Stogner

To plant a church is the greatest way to bring new believers to Jesus. To encourage the heart of a church planter and his wife with Jesus’ gospel is the greatest way to encourage a church plant.

Phil and Wendy have served in the ministry of church planting for over 34 years. After having met during college in Charleston, South Carolina, they married and spent their honeymoon on the road to Covenant Seminary. Following the call to be a church planter has taken them from North Carolina to Florida to Utah and finally back to Charleston, South Carolina, as they began new congregations. With a passion for pastors and their wives, they feel gifted and called to come alongside them with the gospel to support them and their families in their ministry.

The Stogners are committed to the Generation’s vision to plant 30 new congregations by 2030 (30 x 30). They will be working with the Glasgow City Free Church to encourage pastors in this large and strategic city. Believing that “it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace,” Phil and Wendy will serve the national pastors and their wives who seek to grow gospel-centred churches for the glory of God in Glasgow. Their desire is to coach, counsel, and care for the Scottish shepherds who have a vision to see Christ’s wee little flock grow into healthy churches as the gospel grows outward in Glasgow.
