Senior Pastor: Rev. Andrew R. Stager

Andy and Ellie Stager moved to Switzerland from Seoul, Korea, where Andy taught and ministered at Yongsan International School of Seoul. He was also Associate Pastor at Seoul Covenant Church. Prior to that, the Stagers planted Hill City Church in Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA. Andy began his ordained ministry as an Associate Pastor at First Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church of Rock Hill. Like LeBron James, though, he is essentially “just a kid from Akron, Ohio.”

Andy is more than a little obsessed with the love of God in Christ. He considers it his life’s work to explore and express the love of God in his public ministry, in his marriage, with his three sons, and among his neighbors and friends. The love of God and the nature of human love for others is both his intellectual and practical preoccupation.

On another level, Andy maintains borderline obsessions with the reading, writing, and collecting of books; with the roasting, brewing, serving, and consumption of coffee; with open windows and natural light; and with other indoor pursuits. Occasionally he can be lured outdoors for a picnic, a run, a walk around Zurich’s Old Town, or a day of snowboarding.

Andy loves living in Switzerland and is thrilled to serve as a pastor at IPC.
