Andrew designs electronics for a company that manufactures ag equipment.  Andrew appreciates the ELCA’s emphasis on love above all else. In this ALC is no exception. He loves that ALC is welcoming in a way that goes far deeper than the superficial greeting you might receive from the welcome committee at a mega church. Andrew believes the greatest purpose of church is the community.
