Andrea is an ordained pastor with the CBWC and currently serves as the Minister of Worship at First Baptist Church in the heart of Vancouver. She is a preacher, liturgist, vocalist, pianist, arranger and composer whose study of theology has led to a passion for thoughtful worship. 

She loves to explore the relationship between theology and doxology, the way what we believe about God influences how we worship and vice versa. She enjoys music of almost all varieties and has a growing sense of the importance of the church calendar for the spiritual formation and expressions of unity within the church around the globe. 

Andrea is married to Gordon and they have two kids, Emily & Brendan. They live in Richmond, where Andrea enjoys coffee, fiction and cooking that isn't necessarily kid-friendly.
