Andy Botts

Andy has served as the Worship Arts Pastor at Severns Valley since 2015.  Before coming to SV, he served for 8 years in Bradenton Beach, Florida, and only went to the beach 11 times. Andy is originally from the mountains of East Tennessee where he started leading worship in his home church at the age of 15. After playing in local bands and pursuing a degree in Video Production, he felt called to Worship Ministry so he packed it all up and moved to Mobile, Alabama where he found a love for seafood. He graduated with a degree in Worship Leadership & Theology from the University of Mobile in 2007. Andy met his wife Lauren in 2003 when she was Snow White at Disney World, and they have been married since 2008. They have two children, Ashton who is 11, and Cooper who is almost 9. 

In his free time, you can find Andy in his woodshop, listening to music on his porch swing, playing guitar or disc golf, and relentlessly quoting the movie The Emperor’s New Groove.
