Pastor Andrew was raised in Papillion, Nebraska, and has attended Midlands for most of his life. In December of 2007, through the ministry of Midlands, he came to trust in Christ as his Saviour. It has been his desire to serve the Lord in ministry since that time.
Shortly after his salvation, the Lord led Pastor Andrew to Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies. He also met his wife, Amanda, while attending this school. He and Amanda enjoy parenting their four children, Peter, Amelia, Emma, and Luke and serving the Lord together at Midlands. Andrew has been on staff as the Associate Pastor of Midlands since May of 2013. In February of 2019, the church voted to call Andrew to serve as the next pastor upon Pastor Lydick’s retirement. The pastoral transition took place on June 2, 2019 and God has continued to move the church forward under Pastor Andrew’s leadership.
