Andrea Plotner is wife to Todd, and mother to three hungry boys (four if you count their Korean exchange student). A former Army spouse, Andrea has been involved in military women’s ministry for 22 years where the rubber meets the road in the form of frequent moves, deployments, and raw difficulties yet where the hope of Christ is real and ready, as it is for all in need (and we’re all needy when it comes to God’s grace!).

Meeting Christ first at a Billy Graham crusade and then through the ministry of Young Life, Andrea has had an insatiable thirst for God’s Word since age 16. This thirst prompted studies at Point Loma Nazarene University (BA) and then American University (MA), both of which led to extensive work with churches, parachurches, and non-profit organizations. Andrea is the most recent past-president of PWOC International, and is in her sweet spot when teaching and developing curriculum.

Andrea and her family are grateful to live in Moscow, ID (home of the University of Idaho), where Andrea coordinates Women’s Ministries for her local church, as well doing a hodge-podge of other things to include teaching water aerobics and most recently launching a food-walking-tour business!

Author of Outrageous Olives and Discipleship 101 ( Andrea is thrilled to be spearheading PRs new Online Bible Study Community “Rooted” with the goal of helping women become grounded in God’s Word – our truest source of hope, identity, and strength.
