Andrew is our Lead Pastor at Compass, moving our church forward in the pursuit of our vision to be a multisite church, committed to the spiritual transformation of people, families, and communities. Andrew works with our Elder Board, oversees our staff team and leads our teaching ministry.
After almost two decades as a pastor in Mississauga, Andrew and his wife Amy moved to Orangeville 3 1/2 years ago with their four sons: Johnathan, Matthew, Eric, and Mitchell. Andrew is highly relational and passionate about church planting and missional community engagement. He is active in our community in many ways including coaching hockey and baseball.
Andrew has a desire to see others walk in a deepening relationship with Jesus and to be fully equipped to live out God’s mission in their everyday lives. He grew up in a farming family in Southern Ontario (Arkona) before moving to Toronto to study at Ontario Bible College and Ontario Theological Seminary (Tyndale).
In 2008, Andrew developed a life-threatening illness which after four difficult years required neurosurgery and several critical medical procedures. The process of preparing to die both shook and solidified his faith. He loves watching NASCAR racing and cheers for all things Toronto when it comes to sports.
