After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Baylor University, Andrew spent seven years working with Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru), building spiritual movements on college campuses here in the states and overseas. In 2010, Andrew felt the Lord’s prompting to continue his education and, in 2012, he graduated from Texas Women’s University with a master’s in Counseling and Development. After providing counseling services at the Denton County Jail, Andrew transitioned into a Pastoral Residency at The Village Church. During his residency, Andrew directed the Recovery Support Ministry, taught biblical counseling courses, and provided marital, pre-marital, addictions, family, and crisis counseling.
Andrew’s passion is to display the glory of God in the darkest moments and places of peoples’ lives and to help them see that the Lord’s ability to save, heal, restore, and redeem is not hindered by the severity of our circumstances or weaknesses. The Lord is always able, even when we feel like we're not. Andrew has experience counseling in marriage, parenting, crisis counseling, suicide, addictions, depression, anger management, stress and anxiety, same-sex attraction, multicultural issues, and cross-cultural living.
Andrew has been married to Tricia for 16 years and has three sweet children. In his free time, Andrew is an avid runner and coaches at a local running shop in Austin.
