About Pastor Andrew
Andrew Conley-Holcom took a roundabout way to the ministry, starting first as a public school teacher before finding a calling in genocide studies and violence prevention education. He has worked as a youth director, a conflict management workshop facilitator, and an advocate for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
He received his M.A. in Anthropology from Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA and his M.Div. from Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA. He was the first male M.Div. student to earn the Women's Studies in Religion Certificate from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA.
