Pastor Andre's primary goal as our pastor involves growing Twin Oaks for the glory of God in accordance to its purpose. One of the reoccurring themes he will share is the re-parenting work of our Heavenly Father.
Called to Twin Oaks in July of 1997, this is his first pastorate, fresh out of Golden Gate Seminary. He was involved in various ministries prior to this pastorate, most memorable as a Neighborhood Ministry Director in East San Jose for about 3 years. He grew up in Santa Clara, California.
Pastor Andre is married to Kim Richner, who has faithfully ministered by his side in various capacities through the years. They have two adult children, Elisha and Anita.
