I am so happy to have been a part of the St. Andrew’s family since 2015. This is my home! Pastor Richard and all of the people I met when I first came to St. Andrew’s were so friendly and happy to welcome me in. I believe we are a great team and work together to help make St. Andrew’s a home for us all.
