Dyer.  Rev. Anderson continued to serve and learn from Pastor Dyer at various ministries throughout the State of Georgia.  In June of 1987 he was called to the pastorate of the New Macedonia Baptist Church where he has labored faithfully for 29 years.

In addition to providing pastoral leadership to the New Macedonia Baptist Church, Pastor Anderson serves as a member of Association of Christian Ministries (ACM) of Clayton County and is a lifetime member of the NAACP.  Pastor Anderson is truly a man after God’s own heart; and he will provide time to talk with you and minster to you.  Pastor Anderson is an excellent role model and a pillar in the community.  He is truly a blessing to Riverdale, Clayton County and the surrounding area.
