After growing up in a small country church Drew had a real experience with Jesus when he was 17 that changed his life. Beginning as a hobby, Drew began studying the art of magic and mentalism. He loves the opportunity to perform using his skills of illusion and has had opportunities to perform on stages all over the country as well as internationally. However, those elements just help him connect with a group to deliver the Word and share the Gospel in a real and relevant way.
In 2006, he felt God stir within his heart a passion to plant churches in the most unchurched region of our country (Pacific Northwest) among the most unchurched age group (college students). He spent 11 years there planting churches throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho and raising up young leaders to become church planters, leaders and disciple-makers. Drew also got to work with the North American Mission board to help start and lead a leadership development project of a leadership pipeline across all seven of their church plant campuses.
Drew now serves as the Young Adult Pastor at Community Bible Church in San Antonio, TX alongside GENERATE communicator Ed Newton. Drew is married to his wife, Jane, and he still travels, performs and speaks throughout the year and loves building up and training the Church and is thankful to serve and be a part of the bride of Christ.
“Drew is just magic to be around. Ok, that is not a great joke considering he does magic tricks. What I have loved about Drew over this last decade of knowing him is his ability to connect with students and effectively communicate the Word.” – J. Roger Davis
