Associate Pastor of Discipleship
Born and raised just a short drive from the beach in Virginia, Andrew is still getting used to living in a landlocked state! After graduating in 2014 from Liberty University, he attended the Kanakuk Institute in Branson, MO in order to further his passion for God's Word and a life of ministry.
During his time in Branson, Andrew crossed with paths with Emily and they were married in 2017. They welcomed their baby girl, Collins Grace, into the world in 2018!
Andrew joined the FBC team early in 2019 as the Associate Pastor of Discipleship. He is passionate about knowing God's Word and helping others do the same.

Counseling Ministry Director
Emily was born and raised in Scott City. She is so thankful for the part that so many of the people in this town played in spurring her on to love the Lord and walk with Him daily. Emily is passionate about the Word of God and believes wholeheartedly that it is completely sufficient for everything pertaining to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). She believes that she is a tool for the Lord to use as He meets people in their hardship and transforms their lives.
Two of the sweetest blessings in Emily’s life are her husband Andrew and her baby girl Collins Grace. (Also her family that lives next door and her little dog Finn.)
There is nothing Emily loves more than spending time with her little family. Coming in at a close second is playing any kind of game with her family or friends. (She especially likes it when she wins.)
