Rev. Steven Andrews

Pastor

Pastor Steve hails from Fort Wayne, IN, the 72nd largest city in the country, but these days, he’s happy to call the cozy hamlet of Parkville and the bright metropolis of Kansas City home. Before coming to Parkville, Steve worked in a home detention center, a community college, a children’s hospital, and a few other churches, but he’s never done anything more difficult than youth ministry with middle schoolers. During his free time, Steve enjoys spending time with his family, walking his dog, reading a good book, and watching Netflix. He is passionate about leading dynamic worship services and meeting new people; whether you are a long-time member of the church or a brand new visitor, he is looking forward to meeting you.

THE BOARD OF DEACONS

The Board of Deacons is comprised of twelve individuals ordained to lead the congregation in its ministries of compassion, sympathy and service. Deacons serve in many areas of the church’s life, but they place particular emphasis on visiting congregants of limited mobility, assisting in worship, and helping people in need of home repairs.

THE SESSION

The Session consists of the pastors and twelve ordained ruling elders. As the church’s governing board, they are responsible for providing spiritual leadership to the congregation, managing the physical property of the church, and leading our ministry teams in their work of outreach, mission, and hospitality.
