Andrew (Drew) Gysi is the Ministry Director for the Life Institute which includes Church relations, connecting with Pastors, overseeing our various nationwide seminars, and managing all church and ministry planning. Before joining Life Institute, Drew served in different pastoral capacities (Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, Executive Pastor, and Senior Pastor) at small and large church ministries for nearly 30 years.
Drew holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Bible from Philadelphia College of Bible, and a Master’s of Science Degree in Bible from Philadelphia Biblical University. As an ordained minister (times two!), Drew understands first-hand the great joys and heartaches that pastors experience as they minister in the local church. His heart for teaching and preaching God’s Word brings a pastoral, yet personal touch to Life Institute’s seminars. As the Ministry Director, Drew enjoys the opportunities to shepherd, encourage and counsel pastors all across the country.
Married for 35 years, Drew and his wife, Cheryl, have two children, Spencer and Cambria, and a daughter-in-law, Emilie. When Drew and Cheryl are not ministering in other churches, they attend Branch Life Church in Pottstown, PA where he serves as a small group leader and budget/finance team leader. In Drew’s spare time, he enjoys working on his “fixer-upper” home/property, along with working on anything with a motor, especially his motorcycle, his 1967 Galaxie 500 Convertible, and old International Harvester tractor.
