Phil and Linda’s Story
The Gottschalks have been serving at Tyndale Theological Seminary in Amsterdam, the Netherlands since 2000. Phil is Chair of the Division of Theological and Historical Studies and an Associate Professor. Tyndale has welcomed students from 65 countries and six continents in its 25-year history. Courses are taught in English, and they offer Master’s programs in Divinity and Evangelical Theology. Their interdenominational and intercultural student body and staff allow them to train men and women in a unique way for cross-cultural missionary service. In fact, many of their students go on to be pastors, church planters, evangelists, and teachers at Bible colleges in their home countries. Before coming to Tyndale, Phil and Linda served in Belgium, where they were involved with international students doing evangelism and discipleship. Their first assignment was in the former Yugoslavia as a part of the Eastern European Bible Institute, which had a residence facility in Vienna, Austria. They also lived in Serbia from 1986-1994, training church leaders as an extension arm of EEBI.
