Jody and CJ have a zest for life. Their outlook is one of adventure and their passion for ministry always leads them there. In 1990, they were married in CJ’s hometown of Billings, Montana and immediately embarked on their big adventure. They served on staff at New Harvest Church in Clewiston, Florida under Bishop’s Tony and Kathy Miller. Their adventure at NHC included both worship and youth ministry.
In 2000, Jody and CJ moved to Ft. Myers, Florida and served on staff at Life Church under both Dr. David Deaton and his son, Pastor Ryan Deaton. They gave oversight to the youth, college & career and help’s ministries. They helped develop Life Training Institute: a two year intern program for young people ages 18-25, functioning as Dean of Students from 2001-2006.
Jody and CJ’s love for people and their huge heart for seeing people’s lives changed led them in 2006 to Denton, Texas. They joined Pastor’s Duane & Kris White and a team who converged from across the country and other nations to plant a new church: The Bridge @ Denton.
From 2007-2012, Jody and CJ served Bishop’s Tony and Kathy Miller as coordinators for Destiny Network International. They both served as pastors at The Cathedral in Oklahoma City (now known as The Gate Church) playing an integral part in pastoral care and serving on the Core Leadership team. They are active members of Destiny Network and value relationships with those who serve around the world.
Currently, Jody and CJ serve as campus pastors at Life Church and reside in Columbus, Mississippi. If you ever ask them where they are from...the answer will be: "Columbus, Mississippi. God loves this city, and so do we!"
Jody loves to laugh and enjoys even more making other’s laugh. He doesn’t take life too seriously but one thing he is serious about is his passion for the presence of God and the fact that everyone has a purpose! CJ’s love for life and seeing others obtain life is evident as she delivers the Word of God with passion and practical application. It has been Jody and CJ’s lifelong mandate to connect people to the presence of a living God and see their lives transformed.
Their whole family, which includes their daughter Austyn and son Josiah share in their zest for life and passion for His presence. They love traveling to the nations and sharing with others all God has done. The Andrews family realize that to the world they just may mean "one" - but to one they just may mean the "world"!
