Andrew Severinsen and his wife, Rachel, both grew up in Southern California, but they have lived in Powell now for about 6 years. Andrew studied mathematics at UCLA and then received his Master of Divinity degree from Biola University (Talbot School of Theology). After about 10 years in youth ministry, Andrew and Rachel felt God leading them to pursue a Senior Pastor role within the EFCA. Andrew longs to point people and families to Jesus, our greatest Treasure, through the studying and teaching of God's Word, through growth in the context of relationships and having a lot of fun together.
Rachel is a Nurse at Powell Hospital. Andrew and Rachel love adventuring and exploring the beauty of Northwest Wyoming, riding their horses, and taking care of their farm/ranch. Andrew is also an avid sports fan of his alma mater, UCLA. Go Bruins!!!
