Pastor Marty Anderson came to Commonwealth from University Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland, where he served as Associate Pastor for College Ministries for seven years. At UBC, he organized and taught, counseled and led a weekly informal service for 80-100 college students that included music, testimonies, Scripture readings, and a message. In addition, he led student mission trips to Costa Rica, Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, and Atlanta. At Commonwealth, he has drawn on his rich college experience as a Centrifuge camp worship leader by helping lead our youth group on their summer trip to Passport Camp in Wingate, NC.
Born in Saltillo, Mississippi, Marty holds a degree in Educational Psychology from Mississippi State University and his MDiv from the McAfee School of Theology. In addition to spending time with his family, Marty enjoys playing guitar (sometimes even in our services!) and watching college football, particularly his alum team, Mississippi State.
