Our Story & Ministry
Andrew is originally from the Dallas/Ft. Worth Area and grew up at Mansfield Bible Church. Sarah is from Denver and moved around a lot growing up. Somehow, through life circumstances and God’s providence, they both ended up at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. Both grew up in Christ-centered homes but it wasn’t until their freshmen year of college that they started learning how to personally walk with Jesus Christ. Most of this life transformation came through the ministry of the Navigators in Florida. In 2012, after 4 years of school and heavy involvement with Navs, they graduated, got married and decided to go on Navigator staff. They wanted to influence college students for the Kingdom of God just as staff members had done for them years earlier.
They moved to Jacksonville, FL in the summer of 2012 and began working alongside Navigator Staff at the University of North Florida. They spent four years at UNF, learning how to trust God in full-time ministry and being trained by older, more experienced staff. They welcomed their first son, Noah, in November of 2015. In the summer of 2016, the Navigators asked them to move 4 hours south to the University of South Florida in Tampa to take over the Navigator campus ministry there.
Andrew & Sarah are passionate about the role that college students play in advancing the gospel around the world. Their ministry specializes in deep small-group bible studies and has a high emphasis on evangelism and one-on-one disciple-making. They are convinced that college students are going to reach the world with a message, and want to make sure the message they carry is the gospel!
