A ndrew DeLong grew up in a Christian home, as a Missionary Kid, but had no desire to follow his father’s footsteps into ministry. He had his mind set on entering the business world after graduating college with a degree in Business Management.
But God had other plans for Andrew:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
After a personal encounter with God, this verse became Andrew’s life verse, a message he took to heart and a message he wanted to share with others. This revelation has been the driving force behind Andrew’s ministry.
Andrew attended Logos University and graduated from Lee University with a BS in Theology. In 1981, Andrew married his college sweetheart, Renee Wendell, and began their family. They have 4 incredible children: Jillian, Justin, Ashley and Drew.
This church has a genuine, sincere and down to earth atmosphere that would appeal to any believer who wants a passionate faith in Christ. The pastor’s messages are riveting and gripping to the soul and spirit. Thank you Lord for this church.
We were led to this church. We love it here. Finally we feel like we belong. The kids are excited to go to youth group. WE were truly blessed to have found our place here at the tree!!
This church changed my life completely. Not only did it help bring me out of my addictions, hurts and habits. But I find peace there. It got me to want to start getting connected by getting involved in life groups. Highly suggest Alpha101.
I feel like I’ve made many friends there, not only at Sunday service but also in the groups. Every time I go I hunger for God more and more. They do not discriminate anyone at all. It really is a real church for REAL people. They care for you in so many ways, from the first time you come and every time you come back. Never found a church like this. Never understood God like I do now since coming to the Tree. Thank you for changing my life.
