Andrew Schod is the Student Pastor at Family Church. Andrew became a member of Family Church in 2004 when he moved to Arkansas from Pennsylvania with his parents. Andrew decided to stay and graduate from White Hall High School, after his parents moved back East. Upon graduation Andrew attended Central Christian College of the Bible in Missouri, where he received his degree in Youth and Family Ministry.
During that time away, God never allowed Family Church and White Hall, Arkansas to leave his heart. Upon graduating college, Andrew returned to Arkansas and immediately jumped into serving in Revolution, Family Church’s Youth Ministry program. He also, led a Men’s College/Young Adult Life Group, served in production areas on the weekend services, led production in Revolution. Andrew was asked, by Senior Pastor Stephen Harrison to be a part of the Transition Team over Revolution, during the search for a new Youth Pastor. In 2014, we were blessed to have him join our staff as Youth Pastor.
Andrew met his wife Shauna when she began attending Family Church, after she moved to Arkansas from Illinois for college. Shauna graduated from Harding University with a Masters in Reading and is currently teaching at Moody Elementary in White Hall. God gave her a heart for children and ministry long before she and Andrew met. Andrew and Shauna were married in June of 2013. On September 22, 2016 God brought Sophie Elise Schod into Andrew and Shauna's lives.
In Andrew’s free time, he enjoys playing Xbox, working on electronics, hunting, fishing, building things, cooking, and spending time with his beautiful wife, Shauna. Andrew loves history, peanut butter, and coffee, and his favorite place to hang out is anywhere there are people and coffee (lots and lots of coffee!).
