We met in college while attending The University of Memphis. Both of us were very involved with the Baptist student ministry on campus. We were married in 1995 and immediately moved to Ft. Worth, TX where Andy completed his MDiv at SWBTS and Kristi began her career as a Speech-Language Pathologist.
Following seminary, we moved to Meridian, and then Collinsville, MS where Andy served as an Associate Pastor and Student Minister at First Baptist Church of Collinsville for over nine years. Following our time in MS, we moved to Birmingham, AL where Andy was on staff in a church as a Middle School Student Pastor for seven years.
Andy enjoyed the privilege of being a part of a church plant and was Executive Pastor at Vertical Church in Merriam, Kansas from 2014 to 2017. Vertical is now New City Church-Merriam.
In December of 2017, the Murrys packed up the house and the dog and moved to Sahuarita, Arizona! Andy is now serving as Associate Pastor at Common Ground Church. We are excited to be here!
With each move, we have gained lasting friendships and have left pieces of our hearts behind. How thankful we are for all of you! If you ever find yourself in the desert, we have a guest room with your name on it. Maybe, you need to make plans to visit the desert. Come see us!
