Born in Indonesia and raised in the Midwest, Andrea moved to the Seattle area in July 2017 to follow God’s calling in her life to full-time ministry. She felt led to vocational ministry after experiencing the power of God in her own life when she was a teenager. With passions both in music and children’s ministry, God led her to pursue higher education in both arenas at Wheaton College (IL) and University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music in preparation for His plans. Andrea is excited to collaborate these passions together to serve God’s people and His church. It was through her experience as a piano teacher that she realized her passion for children and their families. She desires for children to know and believe that they are truly loved by God and live their callings as disciples of Christ. In her spare time, Andrea can be found playing at a piano or deep in conversation with friends over a meal.
