Andrew C. Thompson
Andrew loves the challenge of teaching the Bible in many different ways and equipping God's people for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12). "I get energy from helping our congregation embrace the work of gathering, growing, and going together to become mature disciples of Jesus Christ. I am excited about helping this generation of Christians receive renewal by the power of the Holy Spirit."
Over the past 20 years, Andrew has served as a campus minister, associate pastor, solo pastor, and seminary professor. He has served as the senior pastor of First Church Springdale since 2015.
Andrew is married to Emily and they have three wonderful children: Alice, Stuart, and Anna Charlotte. Andrew says they love living in Springdale and enjoying all the natural and cultural attractions that Northwest Arkansas has to offer.
In his spare time, Andrew enjoys reading, hiking, and playing the banjo.
