She graduated from the Advanced Flag course, Bibliology courses I and II, and had the opportunity to take dance and flag classes at the studio. She was in two dance productions at the Arts Bank Theatre and several Gathering Connection Fellowship events. As Christ Center for Dance has expanded, God opened the door for Andra to be appointed as Chaplin to work with a team of two anointed ladies to oversee all prayer related aspects of the ministry, students, and everyone connected to us. Andra is on the Executive Board and has been a member of the WAE planning committee for the last three years. She also leads a time of prayer and words of encouragement on the Christ Center for Dance- student FaceBook page.
