Our Team – Andy Gray  

Andy has a relentless passion for cultivating harmony in our divided communities and fractured churches. Teaming empathy, truth, understanding, candor, and compassion together, his disarming approach to navigating difficult matters has served as a catalyst to build bridges of hope and oneness. 

Andy has pastored for 25 years and planted The Urban Refuge Church in South Minneapolis in 2003. He’s working on building a committed team of leaders that will help equip and inspire others to be catalysts for harmony in their spheres of influence. 

Andy has a passion for learning about our country’s racialized history and sharing how it impacts us today. He has co-led group excursions through important sites of the Civil Rights Movement. Several of these trips were comprised of multi-ethnic pastors and ministry leaders from throughout the Twin Cities and have planted seeds of unity throughout the Body of Christ. 

Andy graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Oakland University. After several years of training and ordination as a pastor within the church, he switched vocations in 1997 and subsequently planted The Urban Refuge in 2003, where he serves today.
