Andrew was first introduced to the concept of mediation in 2004 during his time studying human communication at Southern Oregon University. As Andrew saw the potential for fostering peace in broken relationships through mediation, he began to practice using these skills as a Resident Assistant in his college dorm and in his work as a servant leader in campus ministry. Andrew received a Bachelor of Arts from Southern Oregon University in Human Communication and has also gone on to earn a Master of Arts in Biblical & Theological studies from Western Seminary in Portland, OR. He has practiced the knowledge and skills he gained through his education working in his local church, in the mental health field, and in his community helping solve conflict and other difficult life issues.
Andrew is a pastor at The Table: A Christian Community in Wilsonville, OR where he has been serving for the past six years. Andrew is passionate about helping to create and develop healthy church communities and understands that the backbone of this is peace and unity in relationships. He regularly works with families in his church and community by helping to foster better communication and peace around family issues, marriage, aging and the death of loved ones.
Andrew is married to his wife Karen Rose. Karen Rose is currently pursuing a career as a Nurse. They reside in Wilsonville, OR where they both are invested in their local community, enjoy gardening, hiking and playing music together.
