Alumni Highlight: Dr. Andrew Hébert ’09, M.A. ’10

Aaron Helm April 27, 2023

Dr. Andrew Hébert is a notable figure in the world of ministry and education. He graduated from Criswell College with a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies in 2009 and a Master’s degree in Ministry in 2010. Dr. Hébert felt called to ministry from a young age, sensing God’s guidance when he was only 12 years old. He credits his time at Criswell College for clarifying his calling as a local church pastor, and the education he received has shaped his ministry ever since.

Dr. Hébert first heard about Criswell College through a mentor who recommended it to him. When he visited the campus, he immediately connected with the personal feel of the Criswell community and the strong ministry mindset that existed there. His favorite memory of his time at Criswell was meeting his future wife in one of his classes, which speaks to the special bonds that can form in this tight-knit community.

Dr. Hébert’s education at Criswell College has had a profound impact on his life and ministry. The values he holds and the theological and biblical preparation he received have helped him in his future academic and ministerial pursuits.

Dr. Hébert’s advice to young men and women who desire to go into ministry or a Christ-centered career is to prioritize their spiritual health, intentionally cultivate spiritual disciplines, form close relationships with others, and spend time with professors outside of class. These habits can help prepare them for a life of serving and ministering to others.
