NEW Worship & Creative Arts Pastor

Andy and Julie are from Traverse City, Michigan. For Andy, the past 12-years in ministry has been an opportunity to influence others to grow in Christ through worship. His aspiration of being a faithful shepherd for God’s people is backed by skilled and creative musicianship. He is familiar with both the artistic and technical components of ministry and has a keen eye for over-all design. He envisions further developing the worship team spiritually, musically and creatively to offer God-honoring worship. For the past 7 years, he has been responsible for implementing a biblical vision of worship through volunteers at his current church.

Andy and Julie have raised their two sons, Cameron and Carson, in Traverse City in the church, in the woods, and on the beaches. They love jamming together as a family and trying to keep their two, high-energy border collies exhausted (not a simple, but rewarding task!). Andy’s interests include wood working/crafting, song writing, cycling, XC-skiing, and taking long walks, rain or shine, with his wonderful wife.
