Andrew Hartwell

Interim Executive Director

Andrew was one of BCM's founders and served as Executive Director until 2008. He then moved to Austin, Texas and worked in a variety of educational settings and consulting projects including working with Abundant Life Christian Fellowship in the Bay Area and with The Refuge (Home for Domestic Minor Victims of Sex Trafficking).

In January 2018, he began working with Austin Bridge Builders Alliance (ABBA). He loved the work of building coalitions among Christian leaders from churches, business, non-profits and government. Unfortunately, in June, ABBA's board created an entirely new direction for the organization. This led to a parting and a job search. That's when Andrew heard BCM's Director of Ministries position was open, which led to seeking God and eventually relocating his family to East Palo Alto. He is excited to work with the program team as well as families and leaders in the community and to participate in the great work God continues to do through this ministry.
