LIBERTY BAY RIDGE LEADERSHIP

Paul + Andi Andrew
Lead Pastors

Paul and Andi Andrew moved to New York City from Sydney, Australia to pioneer Liberty Church in 2010. The first gatherings were around a picnic table in Central Park as they studied the birth of the church in the book of Acts, and prayed over our vision to influence a city that influences the world. They now lead a growing family of local church communities in Downtown Manhattan, Union Square, Downtown Brooklyn, Upper West Side, and Manzini, Swaziland and are currently establishing new communities in Bay Ridge, San Francisco, and St Petersburg, FL. They are also the founders of Liberty City which serves our local neighborhoods “for the greater good” and Liberty Foundation which invests hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in planting local churches globally and helping the hurting around the world. And they support the local expressions of Liberty Church by developing specialized ministries for men, women, and kids and our business community, among others.

HEATH + EMILY KIRKENDOLL
Community Pastors of Liberty Church Brooklyn

The Kirkendolls stumbled upon Liberty Church two years after moving to New York, and, surrounding themselves with a church that has a contagious love for people, they felt their hearts moved toward the city they call home. Living and working in Bay Ridge, they began dreaming of a church that would extend the freedom and love and family they’d discovered to others in their neighborhood. Heath is a high school social studies teacher in Bay Ridge and is passionate about youth, education policy, and, of course, history. Emily served on staff as Finance Director at Liberty Church since it was a year old, witnessing the heart and mission of Liberty expand over many stages of growth. They were engaged during a nor’easter in Boston, married during a blizzard in Toronto, and honeymooned during the rainy season in Zambia. So, they’re pretty much weatherproof. They share a passion for connecting people through the church and seeing lives transformed, and as parents they love helping kids and families thrive in the city.
