Andrew de Vries
Andrew was privileged to grow up in a Christian family and the Lord used this to open his eyes to see the glories of Jesus Christ and his desperate need for Him. He can’t remember a time when he did not trust in Christ but this trust deepened significantly in his late teens through the influence of the minister in the church. Whilst growing up, his family moved around a bit so he spent time in Newcastle, Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane.
Andrew is married to his best friend, Christina, and they have been blessed with four children: Josie, Miriam, Jeremy and Hannah. Andrew and Christina love spending time with the family at the beach. Andrew enjoys cricket, reading and playing lego with his kids.
Andrew counts it a privilege to serve the Lord as a minister of the Word since God called him to Bishopdale in 2009. His greatest joy in ministry is to see people grow in Christian maturity and faithfulness to the Lord. His goal in ministry is to point people to the glorious riches that are found in the Lord Jesus Christ.
