Pastor Andy Karuchit
Andy grew up at Grove City Church of the Nazarene in Ohio and got his call to ministry there as a college student while interning in youth ministry. He pursued his degree in pastoral ministry from Nazarene Bible College, graduating in 2009 with a degree in Pastoral Ministry. Andy has worked in ministries leading kids and teens in a variety of age groups over the years. He has a passion for the creative arts and teaching kids and teens to use their gifts. Andy loves the local church and working with leaders to help equip parents to be the spiritual leaders in their homes. He loves Chipotle, Krispy Kremes, iced coffee, hip hop dance and anything that involves avocados!
In 2009, Andy married his wife, Jessica, who was also in ministry and they have served together at churches in the Chicago area and North Dakota before joining the team at Living Word in July 2018. In May of 2014, Andy and Jessica received the greatest gift when Jessica gave birth to their son, Drew.
