Scripture Union Scotland Announces New CEO

Tuesday January 28 2020

Scripture Union Scotland has announced the appointment of Robin MacLellan as its new CEO.

Robin has been part of SU Scotland’s leadership team since 2008, and has been deputy CEO and director of residentials and resources since 2014. Before joining the staff team, he and his wife Rachael served as volunteers, particularly leading SU holiday events.

His appointment follows the retirement of Andy Bathgate, who has led the organisation since 2001.

Chair of the Scripture Union board, the Rev Jim Dewar, said: “We are delighted that Robin has accepted the opportunity to step into the role of CEO, following a rigorous recruitment process. We look forward to working with Robin in a new way and developing the organisation in ways that allow us to fulfil the vision of SU Scotland in a constantly changing culture. Please pray for Robin as he looks forward to taking on this new role.”

Robin and Rachael have three children, aged from 12 to 17. Outside work, Robin is a keen musician and helps lead the youth ministries at their church in Torrance, north Glasgow.

He said: “It’s a huge honour to be entrusted with the role of serving the SU Scotland family in this way. All that we do, we do as team, in total dependence on God. Together with other colleagues, I will be getting out and about to meet as many SU volunteers, young people and staff as possible over the next few months, to listen and learn and discern where God might be leading us as a movement.

“Your prayers and ideas are needed as we chart a fresh course for the years ahead, while making the most of the opportunities we already have to see the children and young people of Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus.”
