Andrew is a native Iowan who grew up in Des Moines. He heard the Gospel continuously as a child from his Christ-following parents and gave his life to Jesus as a young boy. He became convicted his freshman year of high school that his faith was more his parents’ faith than his own, and he committed then that he would live for Christ even if others didn’t. Since that time, a commitment to know and be used by God has been his highest priority. Andrew is passionate about showing others the joy that is found in the Gospel, and the real-life implications of following Jesus Christ. He attended The Master’s University in California and received a degree in Biblical Counseling. Andrew met his wife, Jeanne, during his first year of college. The two of them love exploring new coffee shops, weekend road trips and time with friends and family.
