Our Staff

Rev. Andrew Jacob
– Pastor


The Rev. Andrew Jacob has been serving as Hanover’s pastor since July 2008.  Raised across the river in New Jersey, Andy came to Wilmington from Ohio, where he had served as pastor of a congregation in Cleveland for ten years, and then for three years as an Associate Executive Presbyter in the Presbytery of the Western Reserve.  His passion is for faithful and playful ministry that leads to transformation, justice, and full inclusion for all of God’s children.  His weakness is for good seafood, any style of live music, and the dreaded New York sports teams to which he remains devoted.

Andy’s wife, Nona Holy, also a minister, is serving as the Presbyterian campus pastor at the University of Delaware.  Their sons, Christopher and Jonathan, do their best to keep their parents in line and in shape.

You can reach Andy via email at pastor@hanoverchurch.org
