When Pastors Paul and Andi Andrew made the decision to move with their kids from Sydney to New York City to plant Liberty Church they only knew two people in the city. That was 2010, and just a few short years later what started as a dream has flourished into a dynamic, growing community that is making a difference in NYC and beyond.
Paul Andrew – Lead Pastor
Paul was born and raised in Sydney, Australia and gave his life to Jesus at age 16. Since then his passion has been the local church. More than two decades of full-time ministry have spanned church, government and community-based organizations. In 2008, Paul launched his own business called The Leadership Coach, and in his spare time he continues to work around the world in the corporate sector as a professional speaker and management consultant. Today as Lead Pastor of Liberty Church with Andi he also serves as a coach for the Association of Related Churches, helping others launch new churches especially in urban centers and the northeast.
Andi Andrew – Lead Pastor
Andi grew up in Spokane, Washington and met Paul in Bible college in Australia. She truly is an outstanding and sought-after preacher and carries the leadership of Liberty Church together with Paul. Andi’s years of ministry have shaped her with a passion to see people experience real freedom and it’s little wonder her leadership and ministry have such a lasting impact. As well as building the church, she’s blessed with four incredible kids…three boys and a little princess. They’re not the normal New York family but they’re convinced normal is over-rated anyway.
Liberty Church is really a team though, not a couple, not superstars – just a team of ordinary people doing extraordinary things as they serve their city. You can meet some of the team here.
