Andrew has been a US Army Soldier, a corrections officer, and has worked for the Federal Government. He reaches out to students of his alma mater, Kent State Tuscarawas, through a partnership between Faith Christian Church and the Coalition for Christian Outreach.
Andrew says, "I've finally found my true calling in helping the young adults of Faith Christian Church and the students of Kent State Tuscarawas in their faith walk. I found my first faith family in college ministry. I went into the world with a view that was shaped by the loving God I came to know through CCO's ministry at Kent Tusc. I know how God can work on campus because I am one of his stories.
Andrew is married to Kait and they are currently expecting their first child.
