Andrew is currently 33 years old and graduated from SCCS in 2002. Upon his graduation from SCCS he attended The Master’s College (now University) where he met his future wife Amy.
“We got married two months after our graduation in 2006,” said Andrew. “I majored in Communication (Print Media) and Amy majored in Biblical Counseling. We moved to Orange County and I taught PE and Bible at Liberty Christian for the next two years before I moved into pastoral ministry.”
Andrew then enrolled at Talbot School of Theology at Biola University and was hired as the Youth Director at Village Bible Church. “I am now the Associate Pastor at Village Bible Church and I graduated with my M.Div. in 2013,” shared Andrew.
Andrew and Amy have three children and they have had four foster children in their home in the last two years.
Andrew reminisces on his time at SCCS, “It's hard to overestimate the impact that Santa Clarita Baptist Church and SCCS has had on me. So much of my formative years were at 27249 Luther Drive! I learned how to think about reading, writing, math, science, languages, history, and speech through a Christian lens. I was academically prepared with the tools I needed to almost seamlessly go from the high school classroom to the college classroom. Many of my best memories are with friends on the basketball court, whether in practice or in games. Weekly chapels, guest speakers, student leadership opportunities, spiritual life emphasis week and retreats all communicated to me that SCCS cared about my heart, as well as mind. I wish I lived nearby so my kids could attend SCCS!”
