Andrew was born and raised in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, and came to know the Lord while attending college and playing football at West Texas A&M. On the advice of close friends, he moved to Memphis after college in 2011 to go through the Downline Emerging Leaders program and, then, Memphis Teacher Residency.
Before taking the role as Youth Pastor, Andrew taught middle school and high school students in Memphis from 2012 to 2020. Andrew is married to his beautiful bride, Hannah, and they have a daughter, Eva, and a son, Anthony.
Andrew entered youth ministry because he believes God has uniquely equipped him to be able to love, shepherd and minister to the next generation, and he is deeply motivated by a desire to give students what he did not receive growing up – spiritual direction and an understanding of the love and grace of Christ.
