When Andrew is not studying, he loves to play guitar, sing, write songs, be outside, hang out with friends, watch movies, go to concerts, and skateboard around campus. His passion for worship and music has encouraged him to step into this leadership position, and he is grateful and excited to be a part of a team of fellow students who share a passion for worship.

Graduation year: 2022

Judah’s interest in music started out when he was really young. Growing up as a pastor’s kid, he was always surrounded by worship music, and quickly grew to like it. He used to sing along with the many worship CDs his parents had lying at home. At the age of six, he started taking piano lessons. Progressing quickly, he also began flute lessons, and was involved in the school band. It was at the age of 15 when he led worship for the first time at church. Since then, he has been an active worship leader, putting his singing and piano playing to good use. He later joined the school’s youth band, where he had the privilege of leading worship for other students. He is thrilled to be able to serve as a WA and impact the Calvin community in this way. In his free time, Judah enjoys singing and playing video games, as well as newer hobbies such as cooking and baking
