Rev. Andrew Connors

SENIOR PASTOR 410.523.1542 x 104

Andrew has been Senior Pastor at Brown Memorial since 2004. He is passionate about leading a church with a commitment to welcoming all God’s children into the life of faith, particularly people who have been frustrated by the insular, exclusionary tendencies of church communities. Andrew is happy to be in a church that welcomes a prophetic witness from the pulpit to the streets.

In addition to leading the congregation at Brown Memorial, Andrew serves as clergy co-chair of Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development (BUILD), a local affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) and Maryland’s largest citizens power organization.  He helped found, and later served as co-chair, of NEXT Church, a national movement among Presbyterians excited about the future of the Presbyterian Church (USA).  He serves on several nonprofit boards and is a frequent contributor to journals and commentaries.

Andrew holds degrees from Duke University and Columbia Theological Seminary, and was the 2001 recipient of the David H.C. Read Preaching Award.  He is the father of two children – one in college, and the other who lives with him in Baltimore City.
