Youth Pastor – Matthew Anderson

Youth Pastor - Matthew Anderson


Matthew, born and raised in Washington NC, is married to Kate and has two daughters, Canan and Laken. He started his ministry as a music minister in East Nashville in 2006. Having a bachelor’s degree in Church Music from Campbell University, music ministry was where he expected to be. God, however, had other plans. In 2008, God led him to a small church in Mt. Juliet, TN where he took on his first role with youth as part time youth pastor. During his time there, God moved in the lives of the students and the ministry thrived. Then in April of 2013, Matthew was called to full time youth ministry at Barfield, in which he still serves today.

Matthew has a heart and passion for building relationships and showing the love of God to all people. Along with leading the youth, he loves to engage with people of all ages, especially over a meal. Matthew is excited about how God is moving at Barfield and can’t wait to see what He has in store for the future.
