Rev. R. Andrew Compton is the Associate Pastor at Christ Reformed Church (URCNA) in Anaheim, CA.
After studying music at Dordt College and teaching High School band and orchestra in southern California, he attended seminary at Westminster Seminary California and earned his M.Div in 2007. Interest in Old Testament studies led him to study at Claremont Graduate University (Claremont, CA) before enrolling at the University of California, Los Angeles where he received his M.A. in 2011 (Near Eastern Languages and Cultures).
Andrew’s primary academic interests are Old Testament studies, hermeneutics, and the doctrine of scripture. He is especially interested in the book of Proverbs. He studies and practices biblical counseling from a law-gospel perspective and of late, has taken special interest in Puritan writings which he has found to be immensely edifying and beneficial to his work as a minister.
Andrew lives in Lakewood, CA with his family and is an avid cyclist. When he is not studying or out cycling himself, he can be found obsessively following professional cycling!
