Andrew Scholz is the founding and Lead Pastor of City North Church. He and his wife Vanessa, daughter Brooklyn, and son Mason, moved home to Sunbury in 2016 to pursue a God-sized dream to plant a new, life-giving church in Sunbury. After graduating from Big Walnut in 2004 he left, with no intention of ever coming back, and now he has no intention of ever leaving. He plans to give his life to this city, and to spend every day working to make Jesus famous here.

Andrew has a passion for seeing people who have been hurt and broken by the church find healing, because that’s his story. He knows how it feels to be angry with God, angry at the church, and angry with people. But he also knows how much God loves to take broken things and make them whole again.

You can usually find him spending time with his family, which now includes another son, Gavin, wallowing in misery as a die-hard Cincinnati Reds fan, woodworking, reading, playing basketball or golf, or eating at Eagles Pizza.
