Andrew Kurtz is the  Director of Children’s Ministries. Andrew plays a key role in the JAM ministries during our Weekend Celebrations, as well as being responsible for planning and executing events for the children and parents of the church. 
 
Andrew publically accepted Christ into his life through baptism at the age of 13, but it wasn’t until 10 years later that the commitment truly "clicked." After college, Andrew committed to a year of voluntary service in Belfast, Northern Ireland where he worked with children and their families at a family support center. Andrew continued working with children and parents after returning to Indiana, but he felt God calling him to fulfill his passion for children through full-time ministry. Andrew loves seeing the love of God in the smiling faces of children and is excited to share this love he sees every day with others.
 
Andrew graduated from Manchester University in 2013 with a B.A. in psychology. He enjoys spending time with friends, playing games, working on puzzles and reading. He also loves sports, especially the Ohio State Buckeyes. Andrew is an adventurer, and whenever possible, he loves to explore new places off the beaten path.
