Andrew became the pastor at Faith Baptist in November of 2016. He is passionate about helping the church obey all that Jesus commanded (Matt. 28:18-20). Following principles gleaned from what Jesus did, and what Paul (and others) continued to do, Andrew desires to see those far from God be reconciled to Him in Christ and be equipped as laborers for His mission.

Andrew also serves as the Multi-Housing Catalyst for the Triangle with the BSCNC, as well as a catalyst for Region 4 on the DiscipleNC Team at the BSCNC. He has a BBA in Accounting from North Georgia College & State University and a Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. He and his wife, Marissa, were high school sweethearts and have been married since 2011. They are from Toccoa, GA, where they lived for all their lives before moving to North Carolina in 2013. Now they proudly call the state home and are thrilled to be serving God from Durham to the ends of the earth!
