Andrew grew up in Southern Ontario and graduated from Queen’s University with a degree in Engineering Chemistry while Steph is from Vancouver and graduated from UBC with a double degree in English Literature and Sociology. They were both involved as students with the campus ministry of Power to Change at each of their schools and the Lord used this time through their university careers to bring significant transformation in each of their spiritual lives such that, upon graduation, they independently followed the Lord’s leading to join full time ministry with Power to Change – Students and have been serving on staff with them for the past 12 years.
In their ministry with Power to Change at U of C and MRU, they want to see every student walking closer to Jesus and experiencing life in him. They believe Jesus changes everything. And, they believe that university students are the future leaders of our world, so as they encounter Him, they will be changed by Him and go on to influence our world for Christ. So Andrew and Steph help students to take their next step towards Jesus. We help non-Christian students discover a personal relationship with Jesus, help Christian students experience the power of the Spirit, teach them to share their faith with others, and to equip them to multiply this into others for a lifetime of ministry wherever they go.
Their family includes their son, Nolan, and their daughter, Zoe. They enjoy hiking, board games, and baseball.
