My name is Andrew Mills. I have been married to my wife Laurel for 8 years. We have 3 kids: Asher, 4, Piper, 2, and Christian, 8 months. I grew up in Spokane then moved to Seattle where I attended the University of Washington. I began attending Mars Hill in 2004 at their Ballard campus. Although I had been a Christian all of my life, it was here that I felt the conviction to recommit myself to my faith. I appreciated the focus on Church Doctrine and their methodical process of dissecting the Bible. Most of all, I felt the Lord convicting me every Sunday.
It was there that I felt that God had a purpose for me and that he was placing me on a path. Within a few years I met Laurel and was given an opportunity to move back to Spokane. When we heard that Mars Hill was opening a campus in Spokane we couldn't have been more excited. We met Miles at the first information session and felt like we had found our home Church. We have been through the ups, downs and transitions that Redemption has experienced. Through all of these uncertainties we have seen God's faithfulness to his Church.
Please pray for our family as together we navigate this new adventure of elder candidacy in our lives. As a family, we look forward to realizing God's plan as he guides us and his church.
