Andre is the Lead Pastor of Barbecue Church which he launched in May of 2022. Barbecue Church creates inspiring biblical content and provide inspiring life lessons through the canvas of all things barbecue with the Word of God acting as the paint brush. Barbecue Church is a network and platform that creates a welcome inspiring space for the recipes of life's journey. The church experience seeks to reach people that may never walk into a church but are looking to be fed. We aspire to feed people biblically, spiritually, and literally. Once people are fed and they learn how to cook, they have the tools to go and feed others.
