Dr. Andy McDaniel has served in ministry for nearly 18 years. He is originally from South Carolina. He grew up in the low country not too far from the Charleston area.


Pastor Andy attended Western Carolina University in NC prior to entering the work force. After starting to work full-time, he served for nearly 12 years as a law enforcement officer. It was during those years that he learned much about life and the reality of needing a spiritual foundation. As strange as it may seem it was his hobby or side job, if you will, that ultimately placed him on a pathway to Christ. Pastor Andy spent many years in the crazy world of professional wrestling. One event in particular led to a meeting with Ted Dibiase “the million-dollar man” and before that night was over Pastor Andy accepted Christ as Lord and Savior. Some time after that night he accepted the call to full time ministry and has served with great passion for the last 17 years in various places around the country. Pastor Andy was blessed to attend Covington Theological Seminary and has obtained a Master’s degree in Pastoral Studies and he also holds an earned Doctorate in Ministry. 


Pastor Andy and his wife, Melissa, have twin girls. He enjoys many activities including time with his family, the outdoors, singing, and playing the guitar.  He enjoys visiting with everyone and always encourages people to stop in for a chat.
