Andy Majorins, Pastor

Family information: My name is Andy Majorins and I have been married to Connie since 1977. We have 6 children and 13 grandchildren. Our high school age daughter, Anna still lives with us at home. Our daughter Emily, her husband Caleb and their 4 daughters farm in northwest Iowa. Our daughter Katie who is still single teaches missionary children and cares for orphans in Africa.

Our son Philip, his wife Sarah and their five children serve as music and worship directors at a church plant in Davis, California.

Reason/Call for serving as an elder/deacon: God has called me to serve as a pastor in local church ministry for over 35 years. I began my service at Tri-County Bible Church in March 2015. My passion is to teach the Word of God in a way that we understand its truth and learn how it should be lived out in our daily lives. It is my desire to serve with other godly leaders in our local church in order “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13).

Life’s verse: Psalm Psalm 84:11-12 “For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!”

Full time Vocation: I felt called to ministry from the early age of 15; I was trained through my local church in South Africa participating in multiple ministries and eventually with the help of American missionaries graduated university with a bachelor’s degree in Theology. I have served in Pastoral ministries since 2005, Dawn was serving as a missionary in Uruguay when we met through our mutual missions’ board and decided to combine our efforts in the service of our Lord.

Ministries @ TCBC you serve in: I serve full time on the pastoral staff of TCBC and as an active elder participate in the greater oversight of TCBC as the pastor of discipleship.

Reason/Call for serving as an elder/deacon: I have felt the need to invest my life in the pursuit of pleasing God and living for the purposes of God since the age of 15. I can see no greater benefit that a person can be to others than to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with them that they might have an opportunity to know God and inherit eternal life. This is my motivating drive to seek to glorify God and participate in the rescue operation of God to save souls from the wrath that is to come.
