Before joining the staff at LCA, Andy Lawrenson served on staff at Nags Head Church in Nags Head, NC for 20 years. He led student ministry, mission trips and ministry teams. Andy is a former bulldog, in fact he was the bulldog mascot back in his high school days. Andy got his undergraduate degree in Theology and a Master’s degree in Ministry Leadership, and has over thirty years of experience working with students.
Andy loves speaking to students, and sharing jokes and life stories at many conferences and summer camps. He has written articles for various online student ministry organizations, and has created networks for student pastors so they can talk about student ministry with one another.
Andy met his wife Misha at Liberty University, and they have been married for 33 years. They have three children, Ty, 18, who recently graduated from high school, and twins; Ava and Eli, 13, who will be 8th graders at LCA.
A self-proclaimed “foodie”, Andy enjoys cooking and trying out new restaurants. He also enjoys watching baseball games and turkey hunting, as well as spending time with his family and cooking for friends. He is excited about returning “home” to Lynchburg and LCA.
