Andrew holds a Bachelor of Music in Music Theory from Union University and a Master of Music in Choral Conducting from Austin Peay State University. Before working at Bellevue, Andrew taught music at two different high schools, teaching choir, music appreciation, AP music theory, and contemporary band classes. Andrew and his family have been members of Bellevue since 2012. Over the years, Andrew has been involved with Bellevue’s School of Performing Arts (SPA) from all sides—as a student (taking guitar lessons), as an employee (teaching voice lessons), and as a parent (with three children in the violin studio). In 2018, Andrew left his career in education to become the associate minister of music and the SPA director at Bellevue. In October of that year, he was ordained as a minister of the Gospel. It is Andrew’s passion to raise up musicians who play and sing for God’s glory, to equip musicians for service in the church, and to prepare musicians to be champions for Christ out in the world. He and his wife, Calli, have four children: Caleb, Ruby, Abi Claire, and Evelyn.
