Andrew Hendrick

Worship Pastor

Andrew is a true born and raised Memphian. He and his wife, Katie, have been married 14 years and have three amazingly passionate children, Evey, Bax, and Luke. Andrew loves to be in God’s Word and growing in deep, intentional discipleship relationships. Andrew can usually be found staying active, being outdoors, in the middle of a book, drinking his ridiculous hand-ground coffee, or working on too many projects at once.

James Allison

Discipleship Pastor

After years of wrestling with addiction and depression, James heard the gospel that was shared with him at The Orchard Church and was radically saved on December 3, 2017. Eight months later, Pastor John asked James to meet weekly for accountability, prayer, and bible study. Over the next 5 years, the Lord worked in James' life, installing a passion for God’s Word, expository preaching, and disciple-making in his life.
Today, James’ favorite activity is helping others realize that following Jesus “is a total reorientation of life” with the goal of transformation over information.  James’ passion is to “make disciples who make disciples.”
James and his wife, Taylor, have been married for six years and have two adorable girls.
