Worship Pastor - Jonathan Andrews
Jonathan Andrews is the Music and Worship Pastor. He joined our staff in May 2001. He leads the congregation in corporate worship and directs the choir and orchestra. His other responsibilities include marketing the message of our church, which is "Proclaiming Christ in the 21st Century", arranging musical selections, and organizing worship services.
He has written several works for his concert band and also has authored over 20 spiritual songs. His concert band music has appeared at the North Carolina Bandmaster's Southeastern District All-District Band Festival. He has written three children's musicals as well as two musicals for choir and orchestra. In 2006, Jonathan's family members and another family began a Fayetteville Community Band that averages 60 players each week. He currently plays the French horn in that organization.
Jonathan says, "Worship is about changing from being self-centered to becoming God-centered. When this happens in us, people should notice!"
