Rev. Maggie André – Associate Pastor/Minister of Music

Maggie joined Eastside in June of 2019. Music is a vital part of our church ministry and our worship experience at Eastside Baptist Church and we invite you to join us. Rev. Maggie started singing in her dad’s church at the young age of five. So nobody was surprised when Maggie felt the Lord calling her to serve in the music area at a young age. Rev. Maggie holds a BA in Christian Studies from Briercrest College and Seminary, Associate of Arts in Library Science from Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology and a Masters of Arts in Organizational Leadership from Grace Christian University. Rev. Maggie plays the piano and guitar, and understands the vital role of music, especially singing, in offering praise and prayer, proclaiming the Word of God, and connecting God’s people to each other. She and her husband Dan have been married for almost 30 years and have three  adult children, Julian (married to Lydia), Nathan, and Emma (married to Jose). Rev. Maggie speaks four languages and has a strong faith and an obvious heart for Worship and Praising Jesus.
