Drew has been Pastor at College Hill Presbyterian since 2007 where he considers it a real joy to journey with a multicultural community helping one another live for Jesus. Drew grew up in Vestavia Hills, a suburb south of Birmingham, Alabama. While a student in Mrs. Steps’ Third-grade class, he met a fellow student, Cathy Pritchard. It was not love at first sight but eventually did lead to marriage in 1987 and continues today having produced three children – Hannah, Clara and Nate. Drew thought he was going to work in medicine as a biomedical engineer but God re-directed his path into full-time ministry with Young Life (a high school ministry) and then Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois just north of Chicago. He has pastored in three other churches: Oxford Presbyterian, Oxford, PA (1991 – 1993); Westminster Presbyterian, Charlotte, NC (1993 – 2001); and Central Presbyterian, Mobile, AL (2001- 2006). He recently completed a Doctor of Ministry in Urban Ministry Leadership at North Park Seminary in Chicago. On a perfect day, Drew, with friends and family, would be enjoying hot tea (preferably Darjeeling) with homemade buttermilk biscuits and local honey followed by some reading and hiking. The afternoon would include ice tea (preferably half sweet/half unsweet) with homegrown tomato salad followed by an afternoon of water skiing. Then as the sun set, the fish would be on the grill with some long-sliced zucchini and yellow squash. The evening would conclude on the porch, overlooking the lake enjoying some of grandma’s banana pudding. What a wonderful day.
