Andrew has lived on 2 continents in almost 30 different homes. He has been the new kid, the different one, the one who talks funny. And he has experienced love that breaks down walls of separation. He desires to see people experience that kind of love. And also equipped to live that kind of love. When we follow Jesus into peacemaking, breaking down walls, we see transformation in our own lives, and the lives of those around us. He has his Masters in Global Leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary, and when he's on his own time, Andrew loves to be with his wife Annette, and 2 kids. He is privileged to serve on the Board of Directors for MIKA.
