Andy Sauerwein, Elder

Upon thoughtful reflection, prayer, and wise counsel, Andy is eager to pursue the call to be an elder. The son and grandson of ministers, Andy was raised in the Pacific Northwest, met and married Quita (an MK from Brazil) at Multnomah Bible College (where his father taught), and went on to study music composition at the University of Oregon and Duke University, earning his PhD before his children graduated from high school.

Andy and Quita joined Redeemer Church in fall 2005, shortly after he joined the music faculty at Belhaven University. Andy pursues Christ in the context of family and friends, composing and making music, shepherding Belhaven students and alumni, fraternizing with Redeemer Community Arts, and reflecting deeply. Quita reports that he often wakes up making puns.
