“The school is designed to provide a Christian atmosphere and environment for children to excel in,” he said. “The parents are extremely happy.”
However, Anderson still forgoes all the credit.
“The key to the success that I have obtained is because God was in it,” Anderson said. “God has done some awesome and mighty things at the church. I’m excited about what he’s doing.”
The church is currently working on a project to help felons re-enter society after leaving prison.
“We want to be a resource for them to help them find jobs, get them in education and provide mentors so they can come back to society and be productive,” he said.
Mother of the Church Mary Kemper said Anderson has done a great job leading the church after her husband, Franklin, who was pastor for 40 years, passed away.
“He’s well qualified to receive whatever accolades that he could receive,” Kemper said. “I am very proud of him for receiving this award.”
She said Anderson continued to carry on some of the traditions and programs from her late husband’s leadership.
“I really appreciate him, and we love him,” Kemper said. “He is a really nice young man and a people person. He ministers to the needs of the people, and he takes interest in young men with trying to rehabilitate them.”
