Andrew Panaggio is passionate about theological education. He moved to the United States from Peru in 2013 to attend Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. His multicultural experiences—from living in Costa Rica and Peru for over 12 years—have enhanced his passion for diversity.

Andrew leads the GRTS recruiting efforts. He enjoys helping people explore God's call on their lives and how a seminary education fits into the mix.

"GRTS changed my life in many ways. During my time as a student, I grew as a follower of Christ through what I learned in the classroom and through interactions with peers and professors. I love having the opportunity to help others begin the same journey."
