Blake Clark

Andrew Roehm

Worship Leader

Andrew seeks to recognize, help create and amplify the culture of worship that is unique to Radius Church.

Andrew enjoys building relationships over board games and over food. In fact, he describes himself as “food motivated,” and is only a few snacks, or a meal away from being your best friend. Forever.  

Andrew's wife Sarah plays a key role on our worship team; and their son Judah is well on his way to finding his place on the Rad Worship team!

Andrew loves the culture and energy of St. Pete. He believes that there is such a spirit of acceptance laced throughout this city. If you love something, you can find someone in St. Pete who not only loves it too, but will celebrate it with you. Regardless of age, race, gender, or any other criteria, there is something here for everyone. Andrew says, "There are two types of people—those who love St. Pete, and those who haven't been here yet.
