Andrea grew up in Dresden and has attended Oak Grove since she was 2 years old. Richie grew up in Trenton and attended Salem Baptist Church before coming to Oak Grove. The two met in May 2000 and were married in September 2004. During their engagement, they felt God's calling when Oak Grove began searching for someone to lead the youth of the church. Being the Youth Leaders at Oak Grove is a very rewarding position that Richie and Andrea hope to be a part of for many years to come.
