Andy Pickens

associate pastor

Andy and his wife Kathy were married in 1979, and have four adult children (Matthew, Alex, Jon, and Valerie) and have reached a particularly blessed stage in life with four grandchildren!  Andy came to Faith Church in January 2016 after serving churches in Maryland and as a missionary in Ireland with Mission to the World.  He graduated from Chesapeake Theological Seminary as a mid-life call to vocational ministry.  Prior to that, Andy worked as a program manager and engineer with IBM and Lockheed Martin.  1 Tim 1:15-16 both encourage Andy and serve as his prayer: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.  But I received mercy for this reason, that in me as the foremost Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.”
