For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes." Drew then recommitted His life to Jesus and pursued Christian education at Washington Bible College where he received his B.A. in Biblical Studies and obtained a M.A. in Human Services Counseling with Liberty University Online. Throughout his years as a college student Andrew was heavily involved as a volunteer youth leader, childrens bible school teacher and on occasion preacher to the adult congregation at his childhood church.

Sarah was born and raised in Gaithersburg, MD until the age of 11 when she and her family moved to the suburbs of Philadelphia. However, God brought her back to DC when she attended American University, getting her degree in Public Communication and Political Science. It was through her time with the Gathering college ministry, that God changed Sarah’s heart forever and she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior. During her last two years in college, Sarah worked with the Operations team at Kid’s Quest Tysons until she graduated in 2011. After graduation, Sarah spent 9 months in California for a student ministry internship. During that time away, God revealed to her that He had given her a heart and passion for reaching DC with the Gospel, specifically with children and their families. Sarah and her husband Thomas feel so blessed to be a part of MBC Montgomery County and love serving alongside the body of Christ here!

Lillian was born in Pennsylvania but grew up in Montgomery County, MD, and is so thankful to be part of the MBC Montgomery County team! She accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior in second grade and grew up in a Christian environment, but did not really own her faith until after college when she recommitted her life to Christ. She has previously worked in the business sector in consulting and as a corporate attorney. After then spending time to focus on her family, she’s very excited to be helping the MBC Montgomery County campus grow and share the hope of Jesus Christ with the surrounding community! Lillian has a B.A. from the University of MD, College Park and a J.D. from Boston College Law School. Boston is especially close to her heart since she moved there for graduate school but ended up staying for 12 years after she met her husband, Drew. Lillian and Drew live in Gaithersburg with their three children, Anna, Wesley and Emery.
