Pastor Andrew Hollander
Pastor Andy Hollander was born and raised in Ada, Michigan. Shortly after high school, he joined the Marine Corps where he spent four years on active duty as a public affairs specialist. After completing his time in the service, Andy moved to New York where he met his wife Sandra.
Eventually returning to Michigan, Andy completed his undergraduate studies in psychology and has spent the last decade working with at risk and disadvantaged children and their families in various capacities.
Andy first recognized the Lord’s call on his life ten years ago. The journey to the ministry has been one of prayerful consideration and deep personal struggle. Andy is passionate about Jesus Christ and God’s love for the world. He is the host of the Paid For program, a weekly radio show that broadcasts on two local radio stations. Andy is also active with the Lansing Area Emmaus community.
Andy and Sandra are the parents of three children. The eldest, Diego (b.1994), is studying to be a teacher at Grand Valley State University. Gabriel “Gabe” (b. 2006) and Emanuel “Manny” (b. 2010) are your typical fun-loving country boys who enjoy riding bikes (Manny) and playing X-box and Yu-Gi-Oh (Gabe). If you detect that Sandra has an accent, it is because she was born in Uruguay. She would love to give Spanish lessons for those interested, as well as discuss the possibility of a mission trip to South America.
