My life started in a strong Christian home. My father was a Choir Director and kept a strong faith in God. My mother was strong and constantly prayed. As I became old enough and was able to leave home, I chose not to follow after my father but instead in my thoughts I was to be successful, I was to make as much money as I could to buy the big home, fast cars, and date and marry a model. That meant I had to have a degree, so I attended and graduated from Marshall University. Even when I started excelling in these things, I found I was still lacking something and was working even harder to fulfill my dreams.
After two near death car accidents and in one having my best friend die in my arms, that desire for a deeper meaning became more relevant in my life. It wasn't until 1987 when the Spirit of the Lord fell upon me and I accepted Christ in my life that I started to understand what that deeper calling was.
I started in a small Church and a year or two later started as Assistant Pastor. Within 6 months the pastor fell ill and I assumed the pastor ship and have been In the Pastors ship since. It wasn't until I stopped tipping God and started paying Tithes that God started blessing my business, my home, my family and our Church.
When we become obedient to God, He will bless us and supply our needs by His riches in Glory. I would not trade what I have with My Lord for anything in this world today or forever.
I surrendered my life to Jesus on June 3rd, 1993. I was born of the late Joseph E. Anderson and Serving Elva L. (Marlow) Anderson. My Grandfather Cecil Earl Hardwick Marlow was a minister in the Baptist faith until his death on April 4, 1984. I was a graduate of Parkersburg High School by GED. I started my ministry in the Christian Motorcycle Association and preaching to homeless under the Juliana Street Bridge for 2 1/2 years with Old Man Rivers. I was ordained into the ministry November of 1996 into the Scioto Valley Christian Conference in McArthur, Ohio where I am now an Assistant Field Minister and Assistant Pastor here at the Heart of Worship Church.
