Rev. James Andrews

 

I am a life-long Lutheran, and a second career pastor, having spent much of my life in sales and management, and nearly a decade in youth ministry. My pastoral education was completed at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, where I received my Masters of Divinity degree.

 

One of my great passions in life is music, having sung in choirs and playing percussion and singing for church services in praise bands for a number of years. Besides music, I also have a background in theater which I have utilized in the churches that I have been a part of. I enjoy most all sports and outdoor activities including camping, hiking, fishing, canoeing, swimming, skiing, antiquing, gardening and barbecuing and most any activity that can get us outdoors.

 

Another one of my great passions in life is outreach to those in our community who are in true need. This is a passion that my wife, Laura and I have also passed on to our children. We have spent much time helping the homeless through local PADS programs and food pantries, feeding, sheltering and nurturing. I have also led mission trips to impoverished areas, mostly around the Midwest. I feel especially blessed to be a part of this Hope community that puts so much effort into care and outreach to the community.

 

My wife and I have two adult children, a daughter who lives on Chicago’s north side, and a son who presently resides in Malaysia. Oh—and also a cat named Zelda.

 

Family is important, which is why I welcome you to give our Hope family a try. We’re not perfect—we don’t pretend to be. We’re a bunch of imperfect sinners like the rest of those who inhabit this planet. The difference is that we know it. We come here broken, but with Hope. Hope for today. Hope for the future. Hope that as a caring family of believers we will bring this same Hope to others who need to know the love and care that only Christ can offer—both inside and outside our walls. So please, come join us!

 

Pastor Jim
