Congregational Music Director, Matthew Anderson

 Matthew was born and raised in Washington, NC or “the original” Washington as he likes to call it. He received his Bachelors in Church Music in 2003 at Campbell University and has started his Masters of Religion at Memphis Seminary. He and his beautiful wife Kate have two beautiful girls named Canan (4) and Laken (2). They are still in negotiation on if they will have a third.

     Matthew was saved at church camp at the age of 12 but it was through his relationship with others that he first saw (or acknowledged) God at work. God’s love, expressed through others in his youth group, transformed his life. This is why relational ministry is a key element in everything he does.

     Matthew started his ministry with Barfield on April 1st 2013.  If you would like to reach Matthew, you can email him at or message him on Facebook at
