Andy Daugherty is a full-time IT Project Manager. He has a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and a master’s degree in Education. However, his real passion is Christian ministry; teaching and serving in the local church. He grew up in church and over the years, he has served as a teacher, deacon, elder, and now a minister. Currently, Andy is bi-vocational: In addition to his professional job in Atlanta, he also served part-time at McDonough Christian church (2011-2016) as Community Groups Minister, organizing groups, supporting and coaching group leaders and encouraging discipleship. His current role at MCC is Campus Groups Minister.
He is part of a growing trend in churches: “We will see in 2015 an accelerated trend of other church staff becoming bi-vocational” (Fifteen Trends for Churches for 2015 by Dr. Thom Rainer).
Andy lives with his wife, Terri (of thirty-one years) in a suburb of Atlanta Georgia. They have two grown children, Amy and Matthew.
“I think because I am a bi-vocational minister and because I have grown up in the church, educated in my faith within the church rather than in formal seminary, this makes me well qualified to write this simple book on Christian living. I have already used this book as a tool in my ministry to bless fellow Christians. Now my goal is to see it used by others.”
