Pastor Andy was called to Orfordville Lutheran in December 2014. Much of his call and path to ministry involved working with children and youth. He was a camp counselor at Sugar Creek Bible Camp during college, including two summers as Assistant Program Director for on-camp programs. After college, he spent two years in the Lutheran Volunteer Corps. He attended college at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN and seminary at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. During his pastoral internship, he served as the Christian Education Associate at Lutheran Church of Christ the Redeemer in Minneapolis, MN for two years. Pastor Andy considers Mr. Rogers a personal hero. In his free time, he likes to go camping, read, and play banjo and guitar. Since 2011, he’s been happily married to Kristin Swedlund.
Favorite Bible Verse: “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:38-39 (NRSV)
