Serving with Living To L.A.S.T. - Not only do I get to hang out and meet some really cool guys. But I also get to give back to the community and help some really great people who could use a slight hand up. The guys in L2L have become more like family. I am blessed to be able to call them my brothers.
Serving with Living to Last the past few years has been a testament to God's design to building a brotherhood that desires to grow close as brothers, simultaneously extending our affection for each other, our knowledge of skilled trades, and the saving knowledge of Christ. Serving with our hands, those who are overlooked in the community, inviting any man (young or old) to join a brotherhood of saints to learn what it means to be a man in the arena.
So grateful for the guys at Living To Last. The relationships I have developed over the years have truly shaped me into who I am today. Having brothers who encourage and challenge me daily is necessary for me to be effective for my family and community. To be able to learn from and also help so many various guys in a tangible way has been a real blessing in my life.
Serving with Living To Last has been a great opportunity for personal growth alongside of some incredibly talented brothers. While serving the community we are able to share the message of Christ through our hard work, attitudes, and love all while constantly being humbled by the stories of others. We have a brotherhood and a purpose that I’ve looked for and wanted but hadn’t found until now.
Andrew grew up in South Portland, Maine, and graduated from Keene State College with a degree in Environmental Studies. He worked as a lead operator for an environmental service company after graduation, later worked as a technician for a water treatment company and now works part-time as a Journeyman Plumber. For Andrew, work has never been about “building a career;” it has merely been the means to do what he really cares about.
It was his passions, convictions, and faith in Christ that eventually inspired him to start Living To L.A.S.T., where he ultimately feels his heart to be. It is his belief that in friendships with men, talk can often be cheap. If we want to be better men, we have to take action together to make a lasting change around us and in us. In his spare time, he enjoys mountain biking, hunting, and just about anything outside.
Dan was born and raised in Massachusetts. Right out of high school he joined the Marines and served for four years, involving two Iraq tours. After the military he went on to become a Corrections Officer for 12 years in Boston. Realizing that wasn’t the career nor life for him and his family, he and his wife with their two kids moved to Maine in 2020 to have a slower, more peaceful life.
He isn’t a traditional skilled tradesman but is eager to try anything, and fail as many times as it takes to learn. The vision for Living to Last resonates with him deeply, and he is beyond proud to be a part of this great movement. His current passion is being a stay at home dad and a homeschool teacher to both his children.
