Andrew Setzer

Maintenance Foreman

I was born in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania; one of six children. I worked as a tree foreman for five years and a roofing foreman for an additional five years. I became a born-again believer in September of 2020. Following surrendering my life to Christ, I attended JHBC as a student in the year 2021-2022. Here I gained a firm foundation in Christ and how to live a life glorifying to Him according to His word. By taking a detailed journey through the Bible week after week and learning to correctly read and interpret Scripture, my life was transformed in many areas. Upon graduation, I decided to return as staff to help in the area of maintenance and where I am needed. I realized through my year at JHBC,  my desire for ministry is to encourage and disciple young men in the Gospel and their relationship with Christ. I enjoy hearing how people became believers and what their journey has taught them about God’s sovereignty. I also enjoy hiking and fishing in my free time. 

Titus 3:5-7: 

“He saved us not on the basis of our deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration of the Holy spirit, Whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so the being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”
