Beachmont Welcomes Facilities Manager, Andrew Scarff!
Dear Beachmont Family and Friends,
It is with much excitement that we announce the addition of our new Facilities Manager, Mr. Andrew Scarff. Andrew will be stepping into this role as Mr. Jon Hofmann retires after 34 years of committed service to Beachmont. (We’ll have much more to communicate about “Papa Jon” in the coming weeks and months, but his last official day will be September 14th.)
What will Andrew be doing at Beachmont?
In his position as Facilities Manager, Andrew will be responsible for overseeing, coordinating, and executing all projects related to maintenance and life safety, as well as enhancements and upgrades to the buildings, amenities, utilities, and grounds on the Beachmont campus. As with all staff members, his efforts will directly support and enhance all of our ministry programming. Within the broad spectrum of Facilities Management, Andrew will also be responsible for coordinating volunteers and overseeing part-time and seasonal employees.
What is Andrew’s backstory?
Andrew was born and raised in Harford County along with his older sister. As a young child, he developed a passion and curiosity for discovering the “mechanics of everything” around him. He enjoyed taking things apart and building new creations, which led to a love for building and fixing a wide variety of things. Andrew earned an Associate of Arts degree at Harford Community College and continues to take every opportunity to learn and develop new skills. Andrew grew up “working on a farm” and has additional experience as a chimney service technician, field service engineer for specialized medical equipment, and as a lead maintenance technician and groundskeeper.
In 2014, Andrew married “the farmer’s daughter” (literally), his high school sweetheart, Mackenzie, and they dote over their two dogs, Barley and Hank, at their home in northern Harford county.
Psalm 37: 23-24 “The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in Him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with His hand.”
