Drew has been Pastor at College Hill Presbyterian since 2007 where he considers it a real joy to journey with a multicultural community helping one another live for Jesus. Drew grew up in Vestavia Hills, a suburb south of Birmingham, Alabama. While a student in Mrs. Steps’ Third-grade class, he met a fellow student, Cathy Pritchard. It was not love at first sight but eventually did lead to marriage in 1987 and continues today having produced three children – Hannah, Clara and Nate. Drew thought he was going to work in medicine as a biomedical engineer but God re-directed his path into full-time ministry with Young Life (a high school ministry) and then Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois just north of Chicago.
