Andrew and Kali are both graduates of Denver Seminary, Andrew with an M.Div. and Kali with a MA in Counseling. Before joining Communitas, they both worked in higher education, where they enjoyed sharing their lives with students from diverse backgrounds.

After exploring several options, it became very clear that God was leading them to Communitas and join a the team serving in Edinburgh, Scotland.
