Rev. Andy Nixon

Campus Pastor

Andy served as the Senior Pastor of First Methodist Houston and previously led The Loft, the contemporary community of the Woodlands United Methodist Church. His leadership at The Loft was exceptional with attendance at the end of his eight-year run swelling to more than 1,500 a week. Andy grew up in Plano, Texas and came to Christ while an undergraduate at Washington and Lee University in Virginia where he studied Political Science. After experiencing God’s call to ministry, Andy made his way to Connecticut and ultimately graduated with a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity. Andy has been happily married to his wife Deborah for 29 years. They have two adult children, Anna (26) and Noah (22).

“Andy is absolutely the right guy at the right time to lead Munger Place into a new season of ministry,” said HPUMC Senior Minister, Rev. Paul Rasmussen. “In the early days of Cornerstone, we regularly looked to The Loft in the Woodlands to get better. Andy’s reputation as a terrific Bible-based communicator is well deserved. We are blessed to have Andy and Deborah join the HPUMC family.”

“Deborah and I are beyond thrilled to be headed to Munger and Highland Park United Methodist Church,” said Nixon. “For both of us, this is a coming home of sorts as both of us graduated high school in Plano and called the Dallas area home for years. To be a part of such a community 1,000 things had to occur, and through providence that only can come from God, they did! We cannot wait to be at Munger!”
