Chase Andre is passionate about helping students cultivate their voice to speak competently and confidently — practicing Christ-like communication in diverse contexts. Chase focuses his research on how communicative acts shape and reshape society, the ethics of intercultural interaction, Martin Luther King, Jr. and the ways in which the Church can pursue justice and shalom in the public sphere. He resides in Los Angeles with his wife Alicia Miller Andre, where they are active community members and leaders in a multiethnic church plant in East Los Angeles. In his spare time, Chase works with his family's brokerage in Orange County as a licensed Realtor and uses his experience in real estate to advocate for just and accessible affordable housing. An alumnus of Biola University’s Department of Communication Studies, Chase holds a master's degree in intercultural studies (‘17), with an emphasis in just peacemaking, from Fuller Theological Seminary.
