Hi, I'm Andrea

I’m a 2nd year missionary from Carmel, Indiana.

How has Christ in the City helped you grow?

Christ in the City has first and foremost helped me grow in intimacy with Jesus Christ. I am more aware of my own poverty and littleness, but I am also more aware of the Lord’s infinite mercy over me. I have learned how to communicate in more efficacious ways, how to be more playful, how to love more intentionally, and have grown in allowing others to receive me as I am. I have also learned how to cook for forty people, which is super handy!

What are you looking forward to?

I didn’t know I had a heart for the poor until very recently. The closer the time comes for my mission to begin, I am becoming more and more convicted that serving and loving the poor is a very fundamental part of being a disciple of Christ. I am looking forward to spending time with our friends on the streets, living in community, and becoming more fully alive and fully myself and getting to be rowdy while doing it.

A bit about me

I recently graduated with a degree in choral music education from Indiana University (Go Hoosiers!), so I am excited to bring my love and knowledge of music to Philly. I love to sing, dance, cook, spend time in nature, and express myself through photography. So, basically, if you need some glamour shots or wanna have a jam session, lemme know.
