Since 1997, Andy has been faithful to his calling of ministering to young people and their families through working in a variety of United Methodist and Presbyterian (PCUSA) churches, and inter-denominational camps and non-profits. He is passionate about helping create ministries that foster a sense of belonging for all. Andy loves helping congregations grow genuine community, missional outreach, and a deep love and knowledge of Christ. Andy has two kids and can often be found hiking, taking photographs, or trying to build something out of wood. He has lived in Oklahoma, Louisiana, and California, but now calls the Upstate of South Carolina home.
