Andrew Smith has lived here in Central Florida with his family for more than 10 years. As an ordained pastor, he has served in both large established churches and smaller church plants. Over the course of his 16 years in ministry, Andrew has worked to help the church re-capture its missional purpose for the sake of the community.
As a pastor, Andrew has sought to help the church (and everyone who’s part of it) catch God’s call to be part of a mission to bring about the goodness and well-being God desires in every neighborhood and community. To accomplish this, Andrew has been responsible for developing outside-the-walls (coffee shop and neighborhood dinner party) approaches to ministry as well as working to re-shape church missional approaches to become increasingly relational and transformative. Andrew has also co-authored a book/group resource for churches, called Discovering Your Missional Potential, aimed at helping every member of a church (not just the pastor and staff) discover how they have been wired to be part of God’s restorative work in everyday life.
