“Andries has given color to the EO by conducting the social debate based on his faith,” says EO director Arjan Lock. “Guided by his great commitment to society, church and science, Andries conducted intriguing conversations with scientists, fellow believers in pioneering places and dissenters in Andries en Andries en de Wetenschappers.” Before the farewell, the EO organizes a classic black gospel concert.
Knevel calls the years at the EO “a wonderful and intense period” in his life. “Working for the EO was for me also mainly busy for the Kingdom of God. That work, in life and well-being, will continue to keep my passion in a different way.”
