Andrew Stone is the Production Director and Senior Audio Engineer at Church on the Move in Tulsa, OK. His audio, production, and financial experience gained from the last 28 years spent touring, watching his back in the entertainment business, and now focusing on doing things the right way in church has given him a unique, and sometimes unorthodox, perspective to his approach towards production. He’s been a key part of changing the culture behind COTM's live events and he loves sharing his knowledge with other churches. He’s been married for 21 years, rarely wears anything but black, and genuinely loves to rock. When not at COTM, he spends his time helping other churches and teams discover their own leadership and production greatness as well as the occasional tour or freelance mixing gig to keep the rock flowing. He is also a founding member of MxU, a brand designed to create and inspire better leaders and better audio engineers. You can find him on Twitter (@stone_rocks), Instagram (stone.rocks), read his blogs on COTM’s Seeds website (www.seeds.churchonthemove.com), and check out his latest endeavors with MxU at www.mxu.rocks.
