Andy Wickham is the Regional Director for Europe. After studying theology at Schloss Mittersill Study Centre (Austria) and the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, Andy earned his MTh in Old Testament theology from UNISA in 2009.
Previous to his current role directing the RZIM office in Spain and serving Europe, he was a staff worker for Grupos Bíblicos Universitarios (GBU) in southern Spain. During the last decade, Andy has spoken on the Christian faith and engaged in Q&A sessions in many different contexts across Spain, most often with audiences of skeptic university students. Andy enjoys engaging with secular audiences around life’s big questions and topics such as hope, the Resurrection, the trustworthiness of the Bible, belief in God in the 21st century, or faith as a psychological crutch.
Andy is also committed to investing in the next generation. He started Proclama in 2013, a joint mentorship initiative between RZIM and GBU to raise a generation able to communicate the Christian message in the public arena, concretely in the Spanish academic context. It’s a joy to see how this initiative has multiplied across Europe.
Despite Andy’s British surname, his first language is Spanish. He lives in Madrid with his wife, Elizabeth, and their three children.
