KIM ANDREWS // campus minister // kimandrews@ua.edu

There's something special about serving on the college campus. I love so many things about my job. No two days are ever the same. I am steps away from one of the most beautiful campuses ever. I have opportunities to travel all over the world. I build relationships with students over large amounts of coffee. And I get the incredible privilege of watching students discover God's plan for their lives as they transition from a freshman away from home for the first time to the "real" world upon graduation.

 

For me college was a time of tremendous spiritual growth. I started my freshmen year running from God's plan for me and ended it surrendered to that fact God has something completely different in mind. Through serving in my local church as a college student I was able to explore, discover and develop my gifts and passions. Using John 15:16a God confirmed for me that my calling would somehow involve mobilizing students to do missions. There are so many opportunities and college is absolutely the best time to go! Hint. Hint.

 

Let's see... What else should you know about me? I have a socially awkward but the sweetest dog named Gypsy. I collect elephants from around the world from my travels and those of our student missionaries. I enjoy a really good cup of coffee, and I often create awkward moments...sometimes on purpose.

Transition. Over the past few years, I have experienced significant changes in my life. It started in college and it hasn't stopped. When I came to college, I was excited to have new opportunities for friendships and education, but I didn't expect the ways my identity would be challenged; everything that identified me in high school was stripped away except for my identity in Christ.

 

The BCM played a large role in surrounding me with friends struggling with similar issues and connecting me to a local church. However, it was in those first few weeks of college--a period of transition--that my life was forever transformed. (Ask me how!) Since then, I graduated with a degree in Athletic Training, started pursuing a Master of Divinity, and I've had opportunities to learn what it means to be a disciple, or follower, of Jesus Christ. I have learned so much, and I am excited to spend this season sharing my life and what I have learned over the past few years!
