Andy EllisChildren and Youth Minister
Andy, went to a public school in southern Sydney and believed he was one of only a handful of Christians at the school. It was only in year 11 that he realised that many of his mates were Christians too. It was this moment that spurred Andy on to no longer be ashamed of his faith and celebrate it publicly. Andy went to Sydney University to study occupational therapy and worked in community mental health settings.

After being tapped on the shoulder by a senior Anglican minister, he transitioned to youth ministry work at Ormond Anglican Church where he has been since 2013. He is passionate about seeing young people develop in their faith in Jesus and explore how he makes a difference in all aspects of life.

Andy is married to Mary Ann and has two children, Abigail and Stephen. Andy loves trying new foods, discovering new music, and cheering on his beloved Adelaide Crows!
