Andrew Trausch
Pastor of Student Ministries
 
Andrew joined the RCF staff in June of 2018. Andrew was born and raised in Ohio as the oldest of 9 children. Andrew attended Huntington University in Indiana where he has received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Youth Ministry and in Recreation and Sports Ministry. After college Andrew got his first taste of the west coast where he spent a summer in the Bay Area doing mission work and then ended up in the south for two years where he was interim Youth Pastor at Crosspoint Church in Nashville, TN. After that season was over, he felt the Lord calling him overseas, and so he spent 11 months as missionary in over 11 different countries. After he returned home, he spent 9 months back in Ohio with his family as he was seeking out and waiting on where the Lord was calling him next, and that’s how he ended up here in Reno. 
 
Andrew comes from the flat lands of the midwest, so he absolutely loves the beauty and adventure of the Reno area. Andrew is excited and passionate about the youth of this community and all that the Lord has in store for and through them.
