Rich Andrews, Founding Pastor
Native to the region, Rich graduated from Upper Merion High School in 1997. He stayed local for college, earning his bachelor’s in engineering and masters of education from the University of Pennsylvania. After a stint of doing freelance web development and teaching math for six years at Philadelphia’s Mastery Charter High School, Rich dove into the world of pastoral ministry at Blue Route Vineyard in Media, Pennsylvania. Seven years later, joined by an excited and committed bunch, he launched CVC in the fall of 2014. In his free time you’re likely to catch him doing crazy stunts at the local CrossFit box or spending time with his family. And if it’s Christmastime, you may find him moonlighting as area juggler/magician/novelty act at the West Conshohocken Christmas party. Rich and his wife Jess live in Bridgeport with their two daughters and two sons.
Kevin Monaghan, Children’s Ministry Coordinator and Administrator
Hailing from a small town in Lancaster County, Kevin moved to the Philadelphia region to pursue a Music degree at Eastern University. He has been working with young people in education and the arts for over eight years. Kevin gets excited about finding innovative and creative ways to transform education, as well as helping young people use the arts to enrich their lives and experiences with God. One of his favorite ministry opportunities is the puppet team at CVC. Often sporting his signature hat, Kevin enjoys creating all manner of art, playing Mario video games, and cooking with too much garlic. Kevin lives in Bridgeport with his wife Jenn, his new daughter Ryann, and their adorably quirky cat, Ginny.
Conshohocken Vineyard Church is a part of a larger church community. The Vineyard Movement is a network of over 2,500 churches in 95 different countries, committed to seeing each generation reached by the power of the Gospel. With a view to embrace integrity in Christian character along with the activity of the Holy Spirit, each Vineyard church seeks to be an outpost of God’s compassionate love in a broken world.
From the beginning, Vineyard pastors and leaders have sought to hold in tension the biblical doctrines of the Christian faith with an ardent pursuit of the present day work of the Spirit of God.
We share core values with the broader Vineyard community:
We are a people of the Kingdom of God who…
- partner with the Holy Spirit
- experience and worship God
- reconcile people with God and all creation
- engage in compassionate ministry
