Pastors & Staff

Andrew Smith

Lead Pastor

Born a Midwesterner but raised in the South, Andrew grew up hearing the gospel but not personally believing. After a stint of running and a redirection from pursuing law to ministry, Andrew received his undergraduate degree in Pastoral Ministry and Bible from Columbia International University. He later received his Masters in Theological Studies from Reformed Theological seminary while leading and growing a thriving student ministry. Andrew later planted a fast-growing multi-ethnic multi-generational church in Charlotte, North Carolina until moving out to Fresno to become the Lead Pastor of BridgeChurch in 2016.He is the fortunate husband to Megan, the proud father to three boys and the reluctant owner of two cockapoos… both of which he secretly really likes.
