Andrea C. Paterson grew up in Western Canada. She worked for many years in the banking industry as a secretary. Upon early retirement she attended Canada Christian College in Toronto, Ontario, graduating with a Bachelor of Theology degree in 1999. After her husband’s death in 2001, she continued her studies, earning both her Master of Theology and Doctor of Theology in International Missions degrees from California State Christian University, Los Angeles, California.
She is committed to seeing people come into a deeper and more intimate knowledge of Christ. She continues to dedicate her life to the study, teaching and expounding of the Word of God.
Andrea possesses a heart for missions both locally and abroad. Outreaches into several long-term care facilities and a seniors’ retirement residence have been established. She sees regular, continued growth in both the people to whom she ministers as well as in the team who helps her in the seniors’ retirement residence. New facilities are opening up to her ministry.
Being seventy-five – many may begin to wind down – however – Andrea continues to forge ahead – spending each moment of her life in service to others and the Lord through her outreach ministry; travels abroad on missions trips, teaching in Bible Colleges; playing congas for her church’s worship team; working as a chaplain in one long-term care facility and two local hospitals. She strives to help others improve their quality of life.
She is continuing to research and write books.
Her previous book Three Monotheistic Faiths, Judaism, Christian, Islam was published in 2009.
