Amie and Andrew have been living and ministering in Winnipeg’s North End since 2001. As a community minister with Inner City Youth Alive, Andrew devotes himself to a ministry of presence and intentional friendship, providing relationship-based support and spiritual care.
He has built relationships with many youth, young adults and families in the North End. He supports these friends in their relationships, in their parenting, in discipleship and spiritual growth through one-on-one visits, prayer, group activities and teaching times. He often walks closely with individuals struggling with addictions, relationship issues, homelessness, criminal charges and mental illness, often during times of crisis.
Andrew and his team mates lead weekly Bible studies with teen gang members in the Manitoba Youth Centre (youth jail). Andrew & Amie’s home in the North End is also a setting in which they connect with friends in the neighbourhood. In all of this they are seeking to communicate the good news of Jesus’ love, acceptance and presence with people in this community.
