Pastor Andy has served West Jackson since February of 2012 as lead pastor. He and his family moved to Jackson from Lakeland, FL, where he was the Lead Student Pastor at the Church at the Mall. A graduate of Union University and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Andy has invested 20+ years of his life in the local church speaking to thousands of teenagers and adults.

Pastor Andy’s ministry experience also includes five years at West Jackson as the Student Pastor. He and his wife, Ellen, have four children: Addison, Hadley, Maggie, and Knox. Their passion is to see families serving together to accomplish God’s will and purpose as they share the Gospel in Jackson and throughout the world.
