Bio

Bio

Andrew grew up on the mission field of Australia in the home of GFA missionaries Tracy and Debbi Minnick. During high school, he had many opportunities to preach and minister in the Minnicks’ local church plant. The Lord used those ministry opportunities to impress on Andrew a calling to gospel ministry, and Andrew surrendered to that call when he was 16. He came to Bob Jones University in 2007 and completed a BA in Bible, an MA in Bible, and a PhD in theological studies. During those years, Andrew served as the president of Mission Prayer Band, as adjunct faculty for BJU’s School of Religion, and as the Director of Academics and Enrollment at BJU Seminary. Over those years, Andrew heard the story of many churches worldwide with pastors needing to retire but unable to find a younger man to take their place. This repeated story, together with opportunity to teach ministerial students at BJU, formed in Andrew and Meagan’s hearts a burden for the ministry of training tomorrow’s church leaders.

Meagan grew up in a pastor’s home in Aberdeen, SD. At BJU, she served on the Mission Prayer Band council and completed a BS in music education and an MEd in elementary education. She and Andrew met at BJU and were married a year into their master’s programs in 2012. Meagan is devoted to her role raising their children: Seth (8), Micaiah (6), Levi (3), and Alli (1). She homeschools the older children and has also served at Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Greenville, SC, as the president of the Ladies’ Missionary Prayer Group. Andrew and Meagan have also served in Mount Calvary’s Bible clubs, door-to-door evangelism, A/V ministry, and both children’s and adult Sunday School. They completed four years of Mount Calvary’s Undershepherds-in-Training internship.  

Someone first suggested to Andrew in 2019 the ministry of Foundation Baptist College in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, where GFA missionaries Bud and Debbie Talbert have served. Since that suggestion, Andrew and Meagan’s burden to train church leaders for ministry has narrowed specifically to a growing burden for the ministry of Foundation. Throughout 2022, the Lord has led Dr. Joel and Sarah Arnold to take over the leadership of FBC, and Andrew and Meagan are excited to serve alongside not only Bud and Debbie but also Joel and Sarah. The purpose of this short-term assignment at Foundation is to allow the Lord to confirm if this is the ministry he has for Andrew and Meagan long-term.
