Pastor Drew grew up in a small town in Western Pennsylvania named Knox, PA. He has been a United Methodist his entire life. Knox United Methodist Church is Pastor Drew's "home church," and is where he and his family attended when he first accepted Christ and became a member of a local church. His parents are still very active in the life of Knox UMC and have served the local church in many different laity leadership roles.
Pastor Drew attended Westminster College, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in the History and Philosophy of World Religion in 2012. During his time at Westminster, while trying to figure out his long-term professional path, Pastor Drew heard his calling from God to enter into pastoral ministry. He answered that call, applied and was accepted into Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. Pastor Drew enrolled in PTS in the fall of 2012 and graduated in the spring of 2015 with his Master of Divinity degree. After graduating in June, he immediately began serving Center Church in July of 2015, and has been serving as Senior Pastor here, ever since. Pastor Drew is zealous about preaching and teaching God's Word.
