Andrew and Shyla McLean have been married for 23 years and have three boys named Josiah, Seth and Ethan. They live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and are avid Brewer and Packer fans. In September of 2014, they launched an ARC plant called the LifeWay Church. While Pastor Andrew had served in several full-time ministry capacities prior to launching, he says nothing could really prepare him for the unique challenges and pressures that come with being a lead pastor. He is thankful to have found the Next Level Relational Network which he says has helped equip him to grow as man, husband, father, leader, and pastor. It has also afforded him the opportunity to build several key friendships and relationships with other lead pastors around the country. 

“My decision to be a part of a Your Next Level group and subsequently the other opportunities that are available through the NLRN has unequivocally been the most important decision that I have made since I started pastoring.” — Pastor Andrew McLean
