Andrew experienced great success at a young age as a State and Australasian Champion Swimmer, and later as a renowned Executive Chef and recognised Business Leader with an entrepreneurial spirit. He left the accolades and emptiness of success behind when he and wife Sharon responded to the call of God and entered leadership in his early twenties. Andrew and Sharon's story of how they became fully devoted followers of Christ is nothing short of miraculous and continues to serve as a great narrative of Gods unrelenting, authentic, supernatural power reaching into the world of lost, broken people.
As a believer, prior to entering full-time church employment, he became the WA State Manager for Word Australia and was instrumental in pioneering their first Word bookstore. Later he designed, sub-contracted, and established their first Megastore, substantially growing the overall business revenue for five successive years.
Andrew was ordained in 1993 and held credentials as an ordained minister with both the Christian Churches in Australia and Australian Christian Churches – formerly known as the (AOG in Australia). Andrew recently moved to a more Global and Trans-denominational approach in both his personal leadership as well as his local church. So he could truly be broad enough to work across all denominations he chose to operate with no affiliation to any one denomination and use an Advisory Panel of highly respected national and international leaders across a number of denominations for the purpose of maintaining tangible accountability.
Master of Arts Leadership (Cand.) and other study
Over the past 20 years Andrew has embarked on a journey of study with varying colleges and programs, including a Diploma of Ministry at Tabor College and numerous other courses. He also studied at Masters level in the MA Lead program with the Sydney College of Divinity. He is an avid reader of a broad range of subject matters including leadership, autobiographies, psychology, secular management, community development, and culture. He enjoys studying the human condition and has keen insights into both Secular and Church culture. He constantly challenges himself to think beyond the box and takes great pleasure in the humbling experience of researching subject matters that continue to confront his current paradigm so he can more effectively connect with a broader audience.

Personal and Family
Andrew is currently 51 years of age and he resides on the West Coast of Australia with his wife of 32 years Sharon, and his two sons, Dane (32 years with wife Jani), Jordan (23 years) and his daughter Dakoda (18 years) who are all involved in G Centre and serving their community. Andrew and Sharon are now grandparents to beautiful Scarlett Belle (2 years).
WARNING… THEY HAVE WAR WOUNDS
In January 2013 his wife Sharon had a sudden bout of septicaemia (blood poisoning) and after coding out four times in one day (literally on her death bed) she had emergency surgery and was placed in an induced coma in ICU for 27 days. She is now almost 100% recovered.
At the end of September 2015 Andrew had an unexpected stroke and subsequent infarction in his cerebellum (bleed on the brain) which was potentially life threatening and at the very least endangered the full loss of function of his memory, right brain motor skills, and intellect. However he is now almost 100% recovered.
