We believe that every benefit in this life flows out of our identification with and obedience to Jesus . We welcome you, whether believer or skeptic to come and hear the good news of the gospel - the redemption of all things through the person and work of Jesus Christ our Redeemer.
Andrew was born into an unbelieving family; however, his parents had made professions of faith by the time he was three years old. Their professions were the result of a true work of the Spirit; therefore, he reaped the spiritual benefit. The Lord’s call on Andrew’s own life was not discovered in an extra-ordinary breathtaking moment, but rather, in a steady and blossoming knowledge that he was a child of the Lord.
The flavor of Andrew’s upbringing was the typical denominational mixed pot. By the time he had reached high school he had become something akin to a hybrid dispensationalist or perhaps just a confused Calvinist. In high school Andrew began to actively teach and minister in the church.
Andrew and Amy and joined a local PCA church in Tacoma Washington where he began to work with the youth and teach adult Sunday school. His re-entry into teaching and youth work provided an external verification of his call to the ministry. Andrew received affirmation from the elders, as well as from a steady stream of congregants who offered unexpected encouraging words. Andrew recalls with amazement how God directed him with these choice words and spurred on his enthusiasm to pursue seminary and full time ministry.
It is Andrew and Amy’s great joy to follow the gospel call to Alaska and begin a new church planting work on the Kenai Peninsula.
