Andrea Tyson has served as the Director for Women in Ministry for the EFCA’s North Central District since 2022. She was rescued by Jesus when someone shared the gospel with her in Sunday school as a young girl. By God’s grace and faithfulness, she has fruit in keeping with repentance and with various seasons of reaffirming to Jesus that He is her Savior and Lord. She graduated from Northwestern University in St. Paul with double majors as well as from Providence Theological Seminary in Canada with a Masters in Christian Studies. Andrea was the Director of Women’s Ministries for 14 years at New Hope Church before joining the church plant staff of Living Hope Church as the Director of Community Life and Women’s Discipling where she currently serves ¾ time in addition to her NCD role. As a disciple, so much of her training happens on-the-go as she follows Jesus. She is a single gal who gets to invest whole-heartedly in Kingdom things while thinking deeply and connecting at a heart level. She enjoys being outside and active by hiking, kayaking, and playing Ultimate Frisbee. She intentionally rests. And she enjoys low-key things like hammocking, walking, and staring out a window while drinking coffee. She is grateful to serve alongside our district team as we serve pastors, church leaders, and churches.
As Director for Women in Ministry, her ministry focus is on meeting with women who are in ministry in the NCD to shepherd, equip, and encourage them as disciples and disciple-making leaders. Andrea is also working on creating greater networking opportunities among the women leaders of the district who have such varied roles. She also prays for and serves the pastors and other leaders when it is fitting.
