Pastor Roger Eigenfeld (pictured here) came to St. Andrew’s in 1972, initiating an era of significant membership growth, from 1,000 to 9,000 members during his 33-year tenure. His bold vision for St. Andrew’s future became a reality when the present church campus was acquired in the early 1980s. The Great Hall building was completed in 1986, followed by the Youth and Sports Center (1991), Sanctuary (1999), and St. Andrew’s Village (2000). “Through it all, we trusted God – and we trusted one another,” Eigenfeld said, reflecting on his ministry. St. Andrew’s has continued to grow, becoming one of the largest Lutheran churches in the United States.
