Senior Pastor: Rev. Andrew R. Stager

My family and I moved to Switzerland from Seoul, Korea, where I served as a chaplain and teacher at Yongsan International School of Seoul, and as Associate Pastor at Seoul Covenant Church. Prior to that, I planted Hill City Church in Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA. My ordained ministry began at First Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church of Rock Hill. But like LeBron James, I'm “just a kid from Akron, Ohio.”

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

On another level, I maintain 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 I can be lured outdoors for a picnic, a run, a walk around Zurich’s Old Town, or a day of snowboarding.

My family loves living in Switzerland, and I am thrilled to serve as a pastor at IPC.

Associate Pastor: Sam E. Gyorfi

My wife Jenna and I moved to Switzerland from Denver, Colorado in July 2016 to serve with IPC. I am a graduate of Wheaton College and Denver Seminary and I have participated in ministry in California, Maui, Chicago, and Denver.

With a long history of youth and young adult ministry, it is a joy to continue in my calling to ministry and teaching. With a passion for theology and exploring scripture, I consider it a privilege to grow together with the IPC congregation in knowledge and understanding.

Jenna and I enjoy hiking and running with our border collie Roland. We love exploring Switzerland through cycling and skiing.
