Andrew Urshan, Pastor
Born in Centralia, IL, and raised on a church pew, Pastor Andrew Urshan is no stranger to the ministry. Growing up in a preacher's home he developed a love for the things of God and the people of God at a young age. He has often said that certain remarkable, faithful saints that he has observed through the years remain his heroes to this day.
After three years of attending secular college, Pastor Andrew studied at Indiana Bible College and graduated with a B.A. in Theology.
Following his time at IBC, he filled the roles of Youth Pastor, Care Pastor and then Assistant Pastor at his boyhood church in Centralia, Illinois for a total of 12 years. Pastor Andrew first assisted the Late Bishop Jonathan Urshan, then was elected Co-Pastor in 2008 working alongside his father until the passing of the Bishop in May 2012.
Pastor Andrew feels it is his calling to pastor people and witness the power of God to heal, restore, and change lives for the better. He wants the theme of his ministry and preaching to convince people that God is for them, not against them. He wants his generation to carry the torch of truth, doctrine, and holiness that was passed to him by his father and other great men and women of God.
He is married to Bethany, his southern sweetheart. They are blessed to be parents to AJ and they have two wonderfully spoiled dogs, Max and Lucy.
