Rev. Andrew Guthrie
Meet our Pastor

Andrew began as pastor of First Christian Church in January of 2019. He is a native of Mesa, Arizona, where he grew up in the local First Christian Church down the road from his parents house. After studying history and political science at Northern Arizona University he moved to Nashville, TN to attend Vanderbilt Divinity School, where he graduated with his Master of Divinity in 2012. Since then he has served churches in Glendale, AZ, Portland, OR, and now Lafayette, Indiana.

Andrew loves exploring scripture, and is always seeking ways that the Gospel surprises us. He often preaches on things going on in the world, not seeking a dogmatic answer to the questions we face, but always trying to be faithful to the call of the Good News.

In his free time Andrew enjoys playing disc golf, nerding out about coffee, and watching sports (only ask about the Phoenix Suns, Arsenal FC, or the Chicago Cubs if you’ve got some time to spare!) Along with his wife Amanda, he also enjoys indie and art films, walking their dog around the neighborhood, and exploring new cities.
