Rich Andrews — Eastern Representative
Native to the Philadelphia area, Rich is excited to impact his region with the good news of Jesus through the local church. After stumbling across the first official service of a Vineyard church plant in college almost 20 years ago and subsequently helping plant a church in West Philadelphia, Rich dove into the world of pastoral ministry as an associate pastor at Blue Route Vineyard in Media, Pennsylvania. Seven years later, joined by an excited and committed bunch, he and his family launched Conshohocken Vineyard Church in the fall of 2014 just 30 minutes away from his sending church in the area where he grew up.
Rich earned his bachelor’s degree in systems engineering and masters of education from the University of Pennsylvania and shortly thereafter graduated from the Vineyard Leadership Institute. In his free time, you are likely to catch him at the local CrossFit box or spending time with his family. Rich and his wife Jess live outside of Philadelphia with their two daughters and two sons.
Rich has also been leading the Vineyard Bolivia Partnership since 2009, and has a vision to see healthy Vineyard churches planted throughout Bolivia, where he travels regularly to encourage church planters, train pastors, and equip leaders.
