Meet Our Pastor,
Andrew and Jennifer Gretzinger are native Hoosiers, both growing up on farms in Northcentral Indiana. Jenni and Andrew both attended Indiana University and were married in 2005. A week after being married they moved to Charlotte, NC where Andrew began seminary and eventually received his Master of Divinity at Reformed Theological Seminary. They served for 3 years as Assistant Pastor in Spartanburg, SC before moving to the suburbs of Baltimore, MD where Andrew served as Associate Pastor for 6 years. Sensing a call to the mission field, the Gretzingers left Maryland for Northern Ireland in 2016 where they served for 2 ½ years until a family tragedy took them off the field in 2019.
Andrew and Jenni have 5 children ages 12 to 4 who are all future Valpo Vikings! In their down time, the Gretzingers can be found outdoors, usually near water; swimming, fishing, skipping stones, etc. Andrew has several certifications in Biblical Counseling from the Christian Counseling Education Foundation (CCEF) in Philadelphia and enjoys spending time with people.
