We saw the issue of grace and life through the same eyes. “Andrew is the same man behind the pulpit and outside of it. I appreciate that about him so much. He and Jamie are some of the best friends Loretta and I have. When we see each other, we always take up where we left off. “I believe Andrew makes me a better minister.
