Andy is one of the pastors at The Summit and is responsible for the discipleship and counseling of our members. He and his wife, Angela, live in the Cole neighborhood and have two children, Raleigh and Elliot. They love bicycling thru the city and spending time with their neighbors.

Andy and I went to college together at the University of South Carolina. Andy moved out to Denver several years ago to help plant Summit Church. Andy has a huge insight into church planting, growing a team, and a lot of the issues related to church planting.



  • Planting churches in urban environments
  • Changing job titles and wearing many hats in church planting
  • How space changes as ministry needs change
  • The city of Denver is more than flannel shirts and hipster beards
  • Understanding the real demographics of your community
  • Environments with a lot of brokenness require a lot of hands-on ministry
  • Rarity of launching large in downtown environments
  • Expectations of church planting
  • Church as a family
  • Importance of reading the Bible above anything else
