Before joining the conference staff in 2019, Andrew served for twenty-two years as pastor of Plymouth Church UCC of Milwaukee, a vibrant and inclusive Christian community. Through faith-based leadership and board service, Andrew developed as a leader who connects people’s deepest passions with generative opportunities and initiatives.

In that role he trains, coaches, and mentors conference and congregational leaders across the country to strengthen the culture of generosity in the UCC.
