Hi, I'm Andrew the part time youth worker and I'm 24. Until starting work here, I've attended the same local church my whole life. However, I moved church in April 2016 when I married Helen-Louise.
I became a Christian when I was 17 through God's Holy Spirit helping me to focus more to the teaching I was hearing in church and at other events. After high school, I studied sports coaching at the University of West Scotland and graduated in June 2015.
At university, I had thought about teaching P.E. but realised that youth work and sharing the Good News of Jesus was what I wanted to do, so I was excited about the opportunity to come and work with the friendly, hilarious and kind young people we are blessed with here alongside the many different people who volunteer with CYMP who have been so welcoming to me and the with the brilliant Cara who I look forward to learning so much from. Therefore I was delighted to begin working with CYMP in October 2015.
I enjoy playing sport, particularly tennis and football, which makes up for the other thing I enjoy most which is eating. I pretend they balance each other out!
