Pastor Andrew began his ministry at Elysburg Alliance Church in December 2013. He believes that a pastor should be first and foremost a shepherd of the local church (1 Peter 5) and an equipper of the saints (Eph. 4). He has been in the ministry since 1998, serving as an Alliance missionary in France from 2001-2006, and in two different Churches as Associate Pastor. Andrew has been married to Diane since 1992, and they have two children, Emily and Johnny. Andrew earned an M.Div. from Alliance Theological Seminary in 1998 and an Ed.D. in Adult Education and Learning from Penn State University in 2011. He serves as a pastoral peer coach and is a member of the Eastern PA District Licensing Ordination and Consecration Committee.
