Reverend Karl Andy Garber and his wife Pam have served as our senior pastors here in Waterville, Ohio for over 6 years. He and his wife have been married more than 25 years and have three children, but only one still young enough to be home with them.
Andy, as he prefers to be called, found the Lord at a young age and was called into ministry during a camp meeting when he was 16 years old. He joined the United States Army upon high school graduation and served combat duty in Operation Just Cause in Panama, in 1989, and During Desert Storm operations during the early 1990’s.
Andy met his wife Pam while serving in the Army, and the couple were active in their local Assemblies of God Churches, serving wherever there was need. In 1995 Andy became a certified minister with the Assemblies of God. He has served as a Worship Minister, Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, and Senior Pastor for several churches through his time of service.
In 2013 he completed his Master of Divinity in Chaplaincy from Liberty Theological Seminary. In addition he holds an MBA in Human Resource Management, and a Bachelor of Business in Human Resource Management.
Andy and Pam are a devoted ministry team with a passion to help people into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Andy is a no-nonsense preacher who thrives on the truth of God’s word and its practical application in our lives. The couple’s mission is to see the people of our world saved, set free, and living victorious lives in Jesus. They believe that serving God and His Kingdom is the greatest calling anyone can receive. They carry out their mission with honor, respect, and the one desire to hear God say to them on the final day of judgement “Well done my good and faithful servant.”
