Meet Our Leadership Team
Hi! My name is Laurie Ann and I lead spiritual direction at First Church Media. I grew up in Plymouth Meeting, Pa. My journey with God has taken me as far away as the island of Barbados and as close as the city of Philadelphia where I currently live with my family. My
courses in professional training includes a Master of Divinity from Wesley Seminary as well as a certification in Pastoral Psychotherapy and Yoga. When I am not practicing yoga or rollerblading, you might find me rock climbing or hiking in local parks!

Hey there! My name is Andy and I am the Music Coordinator at First Church. In addition to everything I do with music and worship, I also oversee our church's website, branding, and marketing. I have a long history in both music and education and I am thrilled to be using the gifts that God has given me with such an awesome church! I have spent most of my career in education as a choral and theatre director as well as music directing at other churches and non-profits. I love working with people and enriching the power of worship through music. In my spare time you can find me making music, cooking, drinking coffee, and traveling!
I was raised in the suburbs of New York City on Long Island. I lived and worked in NYC for 20 years before moving to Pennsylvania with my family. I have an Associate’s Degree from Delaware County Community College where I studied psychology, sociology and history. Following graduation, I taught adult computer classes at the college. I truly believe that God led me to First Church in 2008 through my part time job with Community Service workers. Then, in 2012 after many years of working in the human resources and legal fields, I became the church Administrator.
I found my work so fulfilling that, in addition to being an employee, I have become a member!
