Andrew In Akron

Congratulations to our nephew Andrew Kishman.  He’s accepted a position as Mission Minister at the Miller Avenue United Church of Christ in Akron.

Andrew says he is excited to be part of a closely knit worshiping community and hopes to combine social vision with spiritual passion at his new position.  He’s going to live in the Summit Lake neighborhood where the church is found, and his first goal is to start an after-school mentoring program for youth in the area.

I’m not a religious person, but I admire selfless people like Andrew who are eager to dedicate their lives to service and helping others.  Andrew will bring a lot of energy and ideas and commitment to his job, and I’m sure he will make an excellent pastor.  I’m glad that he will be there in my old home town, working to make the City of Rubber an even better city in which to live.  Way to go, Andrew!
