their fall gathering at Kortright Presbyterian Church in Guelph
on Oct. 15. Andy joined the DFC board of directors earlier this
year. There’s a natural connection between RF and Dunamis as
we are all united in reformed orthodoxy. – Patti Tan Photo

Prior to the pandemic, speaking to congregations and holding encouragement road trips was a major part of executive director Andy Cornell’s job.

Andy’s first road trip was to British Columbia in May of 2018, followed by New Brunswick in September 2019 and Alberta and Saskatchewan a few weeks later. In 2019, he logged 16,755 kilometres (by land, sea and air) to meet with ministers and congregations. In 2020, it was 222 km. In 2021 — zero.

As we emerge from the distancing, the trend thankfully appears to be reversing. His mileage so far in 2022 is 2, 218 km.

Andy is willing and able to speak to congregations within the PCC on any day of the week. It can be a Sunday service or a midweek group. He can be reached at <amcpastor1@gmail.com>.
