Andrés F. Quintero

Youth Ministry Manager

Andrés Quintero moved to New York City from Colombia with his wife and two boys in February of 2011. He first learned about Redeemer while living in Colombia. While waiting on line in the grocery store, he found himself in the self-help area, where a copy of “Reason for God” caught his eye. He remembers telling his wife that he wished to join a church as stimulating as the message in the book. Little did he know a few months later he would be moving to NYC and calling Redeemer home. Though an architect by training, Andrés has been involved in the fashion industry for more than ten years. Upon moving to New York, he worked as senior designer for LeSportsac. Most recently, he and his wife launched their own leather handbag line, Min and Mon, inspired by the names of their sons, Benjamin and Simon. Andrés and his family joined Redeemer Downtown in its early days. Andrés has served as a Community Group leader and Beta leader. Now being an entrepreneur, he has the opportunity to explore vocational ministry, which is a dream come true! For fun, Andrés loves illustrating picture books and would never turn down an offer to play tennis.
