Pastoral Staff

PastorAndy_full

Pastor Andy Perry has been in pastoral ministry since 1997, serving churches in North Dakota and Iowa before coming to BPC in 2014. His greatest ministry passions are mentoring men, leading discipleship small groups, helping God’s people put their spiritual gifts to use, and unfolding the goodness of the gospel by preaching book by book through the Bible. Andy studied at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and Reformed Theological Seminary.

Some of Andy’s favorite ways to wind down include reading history, running, cycling, playing tennis, visiting architecturally rich neighborhoods, and listening to music from the 70’s. Andy is married to Terri and dad to Carson and Evan. He is also a die-hard fan of the Wisconsin Badgers.

Other Staff

We take our responsibilities to care for your children and young people seriously. So before anyone can work in our nursery, teach in our Sunday School or K.I.C.K. children’s ministry, or help with our youth ministry they must pass a reference check (by a licensed social worker) and a national background check administered by LexisNexis.
