    Andy Newell

    ________________________________________ Andy spent his childhood growing up outside of Louisville, KY where he came to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as a result of the proclamation of the gospel as recorded in John 15:5. He moved to Charleston, SC in the fall of 1989 to attend The Citadel. After graduating in 1993, Andy began his ministry as a summer youth intern in Sumter, SC. While in Sumter, Andy met his wife, Kim, whom he married in the fall of 1995. Andy and Kim attended Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC from 1997 – 2000. After graduating with his Masters of Divinity, Andy received a call to become the solo pastor of New Philadelphia PCA Church in Quincy, FL. He and Kim spent seven years ministering in Quincy, where they were blessed with three children: Murray, Caleb, and Anna Grace. In June 2007, Andy received a call to become the Assistant Pastor to Families, Youth, and Children at Trinity PCA Church in Orangeburg, SC. During his ministry there, Andy felt the call to pursue Church Planting as a ministry opportunity. Following his and Kim’s completion of the Church Planter’s Assessment Center in Atlanta, GA, Andy was introduced to the ministry at Covenant Community Church. By the grace of God and in His providence, Andy was called to become the Senior Pastor of CCC in April of 2010. He was installed on May 16, 2010. As an under-shepherd of Jesus Christ, Andy is privileged to join God in what He is doing in and through the ministry of CCC as God advances His kingdom through the transformational power of His gospel.
