Andy, born and raised right here in South Louisiana, felt God was calling him to ministry while working for the Lafayette Fire Department. After retiring in 2005, he entered full-time ministry and now serves as the first and Sr Pastor of Youngsville Community Church.
Andy loves the people of South Louisiana and has the ability to connect with anyone – a gift he claims to have inherited from his grandfather. Andy has a passion for leading people to an intimate relationship with Christ and a passion for developing young leaders in the church.
Married for 39 years, Andy and his wife Mona, have been blessed with the opportunity of raising three girls. Courtney, married to Tyler Broussard. Kelsie, works at a local medical center and Carlye, married to Dustin Williams, who is a 4th grade teacher. Andy and Mona enjoy sharing time with young families in the community, and offering support and encouragement through all of life’s experiences and challenges. One of the things they enjoy the most is spoiling their two granddaughters, Harper and Riley.
