BIOGRAPHIES

Pastor Andrea Perrett graduated Vancouver School of Theology in May 2017 with a Masters of Divinity and has been serving as the part-time pastor at West Point Grey Presbyterian Church since June. She is one of leaders of the new worshiping community, St. Andy’s Community Table, a dinner church that gathers together families and young adults living on the westside of Vancouver. Andrea is also trained and continues to practice as a Registered Dietitian. After receiving her BSc from the University of Alberta, she coordinated community health programs both in Alberta and here in Vancouver. While she is originally from Alberta, she and her husband Jordan have made Vancouver home for the last five years. When not entertaining their energetic labrador puppy they enjoy spending their time cycling and hiking and sampling craft beer. Andrea is looking forward to joining this conversation about Millennial Ministry, an area of interest for her.

During his time at JTS, he had the opportunity to work in different synagogues and appreciated the warmth and mutual support in synagogue communities. Following his love of the outdoors, Rabbi Gibbs led the Jewish Outdoor Leadership Institute at Ramah in the Rockies, and is looking forward to the incredible opportunities of hiking and skiing in the Vancouver area. He served as the secretary to the Committee on Jewish Laws and Standards.
