In the back there, you will note that I am not lifting heavy that day.

Andy Abridged

Pastor Andy is used to being on the move.  His father’s naval career  bounced the family to Hawaii, California, Florida, Virginia, and the United Kingdom.  Andy also joined the Navy and served for over 22 years, so he never really had the chance to “settle down.”  However, he is proud to call St. Paul, VA home.  If the Lord wills, he will be here the rest of his life.

Rev. Wood earned his Master of Divinity in Chaplaincy from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.  Previously, he served as the Youth Pastor at Meadowridge Baptist Church in Zion, IL, and Men’s Minister at Orcutt Baptist Church and Menchville Baptist Church in Newport News, VA.  He was ordained to the Gospel ministry at Menchville Baptist.

Andy and his wife, Dania, have four children, Nicole, Reagan, Mary, and Lucy.  They have two dogs, one cat, a bird, a bearded dragon, and one fish.  The fish resides in his study at the church because of the cat!

Andy’s favorite activities include drinking lots of coffee, lifting heavy things, and going to all of his children’s sports activities.
