Andy Groth has a burning passion for justice and restoration. While serving on Mars Hill’s justice team in
2003, his life was changed on a trip to India and Thailand where he participated in a sting operation with
International Justice Mission (IJM) to rescue underage girls who had been forced into prostitution. This
fanned a flame in him to serve those on the margins and the past 15 years have included three stints of
living overseas, with many travels in between. Andy holds his Master’s of Divinity from Wesley
Theological Seminary and his Bachelor’s in Marketing from Davenport University. He and his wife,
