Andrew Asp Jr is the Director of Senior Youth. He is engaged Maddie and their wedding is planned for January of 2015. He has a bachelor’s degree in communications. He loves what he does because it keeps him young! One of his favorite things about church has always been youth group. He loves being able to plan fun activities that have a purpose. Andrew loves the relationships that are built in youth ministry between him, the students, and the volunteers. He feels blessed to see the hand of God working in the lives of everyone who is involved in this group of vibrant and diverse young men and women who are becoming more involved at Messiah every day. That group, combined with an extremely passionate staff that is truly committed to advancing the word of God and His kingdom to our community, makes for a very exciting future here at Messiah. In his free time, Andrew enjoys spending time with friends and family, watch the Vikings, Wild, Gophers, or any other Minnesota sports team, but mainly going on dates and adventures with Maddie.
