Rev. Andrew Beard

Associate Minister, Director of the Wesley House, College Ministryoffice: 214.523.2201

Hey all, my name is Andrew Beard and I’m an Associate Minister at HPUMC and lead the Wesley House which is the college ministry at HPUMC. I grew up in Kansas City, MO and went to college at Missouri State University in Springfield, MO. There I met my wife, Sarah where we were both worship leaders. Together we started leading worship and working with college students. I had a brief career in radio before I jumped into full time ministry in Liberty, MO at Liberty United Methodist Church. Over the last 12 years I have worked primarily in youth and college ministry and as a worship leader. I was the Associate Director of Youth Ministry at Highland Park UMC before becoming the Director of the SMU Wesley Foundation, the United Methodist campus ministry at SMU, and then finally landing back at HPUMC. I have a Masters of Theological Studies from Perkins School of Theology at SMU. My wife and I have two young sons (Foster and Keating) who keep us quite busy. I also love coffee...
