Experience / Philosophy: Andy has been working with young men at a boarding school and camping ministry for the past 19 years. Thirteen of those years were in southeastern Ohio where he taught in the school, took care of the grounds and maintenance of the facility, and directed activities and skits during the camps. The last five years there he was the camp director as well. Now, for the last six years he has served as the “quartermaster” and logistics personnel of Wild Heart Adventure Camp. He procures and maintains all the gear, equipment, and supplies that are used for the various activities of camp. During camp, Andy helps to lead some of the week long backpacking and canoeing excursions. He also leads some of the “challenge” activities and teaches some of our outdoor training skills such as orienteering and blade safety. Through these excursions, challenges, and teaching opportunities, Andy loves to share the gospel message that can lead a young man to a relationship with Jesus Christ, the creator of this beautiful yet fallen world. Andy is the "quartermaster" and logistics personnel of WildHeart Adventure Camp. He procures and maintains all of the gear equipment and supplies that are used for the various activities of camp.

Family Life: Andy and Gina Morrison with their three children, Drew, Katelyn and Justus joined Victory in August of 2012. At the time they were Residence Managers in the home with the boys. Now, in addition to preaching in chapel and building redemptive relationships with the boys, Andy oversees the campus maintenance and facilitates the boys' Saturday work days.
Andy grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ as his personal Savior at a young age. At age 14, his family moved to Pensacola, FL where he attended Pensacola Christian School and met his future wife, Gina while in high school. After highschool graduation, Andy attended Pensacola Christian College where he earned his Bachelors degree in History.
Gina also grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ as her personal Savior. At age 10, her family joined the staff at Pensacola Christian Collge for her and her 5 siblngs to attend Christian School and College. Gina attended Pensacola Christian College as well and earned her Associates degree in Secretarial Administration.
Two days after college graduation, Andy and Gina were married. They moved to PA for six years where Andy learned important construction skills, and Gina expanded her secretarial skills that they would later use in the ministry. They both were highly involved in their local church and Christian school ministries. Five years later when their oldest son Drew was born, the Lord led them to work with Gina's parents, the Pucketts, in Ohio. The Pucketts had started a small, local church camp ministry and a boarding academy for troubled teens. During the 13 years in Ohio, the Morrisons were very involved in all of the different ministries. They served as Sunday school teachers, song leader, camp director, maintenance supervisor, school teacher, deacon, church, camp and mission secretary and whatever else needed to be accomplished. While they were there, Andy and Gina grew to love the troubled teens that came to the academy, and after several years of communication with Victory, the Lord opened the doors for the Morrisons to join the team and have their main focus be working with the young men God sends here.
