Andrew Eppehimer's résuméLast updated
“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.” -George Washington Carver
My name is Andrew Eppehimer. I am currently twenty-
eight years old and am recently married as of July 2018. I am from Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania, where I attended Limerick Chapel Church up until I was in 4th grade. My family then went to Faith Bible Fellowship Church until I graduated high school. After high school, my family went to North Point Community Church of Limerick. But I personally attended Berean Bible Church located in Sanatoga. I was blessed to have had the opportunity to attend and serve Berean Bible Church. I spent about three to four years volunteering and leading the Berean Youth Group and the Berean College and Career Group. Before that I worked with the camp ministry at Word of Life “Island”. I have always had a passion for working with the youth and Lord willing, would love to pursue this passion as a career.
• Studied for a year at Lancaster Bible Institute in Student Ministries • Graduated from Word of Life Bible Institute in Schroon Lake, NY and graduated with a 3.01 overall GPA • Plan to continue and finish education to acquire a B.A. in Biblical Studies
I am a people person. They are my ministry and are the reason why I love doing ministry. I am extremely relational and do my best to be a detailed and active listener in every conversation I have. I am a hard worker and am willing to learn and be taught.
I have experience with different interaction strategies through the former youth group I was a leader at. In my personal experience, I practiced a lot of these strategies through sports ministry. I was apart of a soccer ministry. We would also host football tournaments and even ping pong tournaments. I am an excellent ping pong player. I have also participated in camp ministry and open air evangelism that took place in New York and Canada.
I aim to make the gospel real and applicable to children and young adults so that they carry it with them throughout the rest of their lives. I hope to teach them how to combat the flesh in a genuine and relevant way and guide them to take the right steps and avoid pitfalls (2 Tim 2:22). I also pray that I can have the opportunity to build, not only knowledge, but love for the Lord in children’s’ and young adults’ hearts, so that they would seek to please not man, but God (Romans 12:2). I aspire to assist them when they are facing trials in this world and uplift them with truth of the word of God. According to Romans 12:2, this will also help them be an active, responsible, and respectful member of society, while still living for the Lord and building a solid foundation (1 Peter 5:1-14). And lastly, I aim to lead and teach young adults to be lights in this world and wholehearted servants of Christ (Matthew 5:13-16).
To disciple students means to hit the ground running, meeting kids where they are individually, and seeking the needs to grow/ initiate their faith in Christ. We can do this by finding what works for them in ways of prayer and scripture, but also making the “Christian walk” real and applicable to their daily lives. It’s different with each teen because their lives, upbringings, minds, learning styles, and how they communicate differs. Each teen will learn and grow differently, which makes it’s a team effort for the church to meet the individual needs of each young adult. In order to disciple teens, it is pivotal to meet them outside of the church setting and in their lives. Whether it is at sporting events or hobbies, it’s important to be present in their lives and consistent.
