ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Pastor Andy McQuitty came to Irving Bible Church as Senior Pastor in 1987 to a church whittled down to two pastors and 200 people just one year before by a split and the subsequent firing of the previous pastoral staff. He led the rebuilding of the staff and ministries there as well as the construction of a new $1.2 million education building in 1994.
Andy wrote a dissertation on relocating a church (“Developing, Implementing, and Evaluating a Program to Prepare a Church Congregation for Facility Relocation”, Dallas Theological Seminary, 1997) and then used his research to guide Irving Bible Church to a new $19.5 million, 17-acre campus in Las Colinas in 1996 whose main sanctuary and education buildings were dedicated in 2003 and paid off in full in 2015.
Through missional outreach, Andy helped grow Irving Bible Church to a high of over seventy full-time staff with a nearly $11 million annual budget and ministering in weekly worship services/classes to over 4,000 souls.
