Pastor Drew has been married to his wonderful wife, Luvy Ann, for more than 10 years. Though have 2 children, Aria and Micah. On any given Sunday they are in various stages of taking over the platform and playing various instruments and/or singing! They certainly keep Drew and Luvy Ann busy.

Pastor Drew received his B.A. in Intercultural Communication at California State University-Sacramento, CA. A few years later he began his Seminary work and graduated from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary (located in one of the most beautiful places in the world!) with a Masters of Divinity. He had begun serving as a volunteer worship leader in 2000 when his father started a new church and needed a worship leader. That opportunity shaped Pastor Drew to be the father, husband, leader, and worshipper that he is today. After 10 years of service to First Family Church God moved Drew to another place of ministry…Cornerstone Baptist Church. He and his family arrived here in Eldridge, Iowa on February 2nd, 2011, the day after the largest single blizzard in Iowa history.

Drew’s hobbies are music and cycling. Though he does not enjoy running in the least bit he can occasionally be seen running around the streets of Eldridge, either shod or unshod, depending on the occasion and time of year. Cycling is the exercise that he most enjoys at gets him in the outdoors and provides the opportunity to communicate with God out in His creation. Drew will, from time to time, jump in a cycling race as well.

His passion is to help people experience God. This happens in the msuic that is played and sung on the platform of Cornerstone, as well as in the occasional preaching of a sermon or teaching a class. Helping people know God and worship Him with all that they are is of the utmost importance to Drew and is at the heart of his ministry philosophy.
