Andy has been involved in children’s and family ministry for about as long as he can remember. Starting as a volunteer in the Sunday School at his local church, he is now just as likely to be found on the stage at Spring Harvest or running a children’s camp in the heart of Dorset. He has worked at Scripture Union as a Children’s and Family Evangelist, tutored at Moorlands College, and most recently worked as the Children’s and Family Adviser for the Diocese of Winchester. He has created holiday club programmes, developed teaching and devotional resources, run a beach mission and lead teams of volunteers at numerous events. Lighthouse Ministries enables him to draw on this rich experience to support churches and organisations who want to build creative and thriving ministries amongst the children and families in their communities. He combines his extensive experience with the flexibility and creativity needed to develop ministries suited to the local context.
Andy has a BA in Applied Theology from the University of Gloucestershire (Moorlands College) and is an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, with a Certificate in Training Practice. He has also completed a Foundation Course in Transforming Church Conflict with Bridgebuilders and a CYM module in Supporting Professional Development in Work-based Learning.
