Andy Resh

Congregational Pastor (Delco)

Andy, a Pennsylvania native, graduated from Millersville University, where his faith for God was reignited. In 2010 he married his wife, Malynda, and they helped plant a church in Murfreesboro, TN where Andy led the student ministry and served as an elder. Fast forward five years, the Reshes felt the Lord calling them to plant a church in Pennsylvania. They became members at Citylight Church in 2016, started leading a Citygroup and now live in Upper Darby with their daughters, Lucy and Piper. During his downtime, Andy enjoys watching the Philadelphia Eagles and 76ers. Andy now leads Citylight’s newest congregation in Delco.
