He also credits a field education experience in Boston as a major influence on his ministry. Originally from Pittsburgh, he calls Charlotte, NC home. Andy graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, where he majored in Public Relations. He received his Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, NJ. He earned his Doctor of Ministry Degree at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in 2017. While at Princeton Seminary, he met and married the Rev. Mihee Kim-Kort, also an ordained Presbyterian Minister. They are the proud parents of twins, born in 2011, of a son born in 2013, and of Ellis, their loving boxer. Andy enjoys reading, traveling, good coffee, and cooking. He is an avid Pittsburgh sports fan and has quickly warmed up to the idea of cheering for the Hoosiers!
