Andrew Aukema

Pastor

Andrew Aukema grew up in Chatham, Ontario, surrounded by corn fields, soybean fields, and long, straight, fast highways. As he neared the end of high school he was warned over and over again by teachers that once you leave the Christian school you will encounter the “real world.” Rather than continue on with his education at a Christian university he went off in search of the real world at the University of Windsor where he completed in a BA in Communications & Media Studies. While taking a Sociology of Advertising course Andrew watched a PBS documentary called “The Persuaders” which showed how advertisers invite consumers to buy into an identity rather than just a product. Concerned with how consumerism was taking over the centre of our identity which rightly belongs to Christ, Andrew set out on a journey to taking his Christian identity more seriously and intentionally, eventually putting him on a journey of discerning a call into ministry. Andrew found Regent College to be the place for his continued training grounds and formation for ministry. After graduating with a Masters of Divinity in 2012 he set off to serve the Prince George Christian Reformed Church. To this day he continues to enjoy helping people see the world through a Christian redemptive lens and connect their living faith with everyday life.
