He received Undergraduate degrees in both Theology and Philosophy and received a Masters degree in Theology from Conrad Grebel University College.
Andrew has sought to maintain a balance between the academy and lived ministerial and practical experience in several different contexts. During his undergraduate studies in theology and philosophy Andrew worked with offenders and ex-offenders in both Provincial and Federal penitentiaries. While working on his Masters, Andrew supervised a 54-bed homeless shelter.
From 2009 – 2016, Andrew and his wife Karen served as Mennonite Church Canada Witness Workers in South Africa. They lived in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and helped to coordinate the Anabaptist Network in South Africa (ANiSA).
