Pastor and Head of Staff

Andrew Whaley is a native of Knoxville, Tenn. He is a graduate of Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn., where he double-majored in Theatre Performance and Religious Studies.  


Andrew graduated from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Ga., in 2011.  He has been serving as senior pastor at RCPC since August 2015. He previously served as a solo pastor in eastern Tennessee.

Andrew is married to Rebecca, a financial planning specialist with Ameriprise Financial, and they are the parents of three children, Simon, Joanna, and Ruth. Andrew can regularly be seen on the greenway or in Raleigh Court running with his dog Toby, and he looks for any excuse to get out on the golf course. 


As a fan of the Atlanta Braves and Tennessee Volunteers, he is becoming an expert in humility.
