Welcome Rev. Anderson 

February 14, 2018

Please extend a warm Plymouth welcome Sunday, Feb 18, to The Reverend Dr. Carey G. Anderson, Senior Minister for First African Methodist Episcopal Church, Seattle.

Serving at AME since 2004, Rev. Anderson was Born in San Francisco and raised in Oakland. “I was inspired by my Godfather, Rev. R.J. Paul as a teenager, who helped me interpret my call to ministry.” Pastor Anderson holds a B.A. degree from California State University, Hayward, Master of Divinity degree from Pacific School of Religion Theological Seminary, Berkeley, CA and Doctor of Ministry from St. Paul School of Theology, Kansas City, MO.

A champion for human rights and equality, Rev. Anderson developed many programs during his tenure including Black Youth Peer education (HIV/AIDS Prevention), teen mothers project and a housing project in Sparks, NV, for which he received a Congressional Award. His ongoing commitment to fight substance abuse earned commendations, and the NAACP awarded Rev. Anderson the Freedom Award Citation for providing civil rights leadership.

In 2007, Mayor Greg Nichols proclaimed Rev. Carey G. Anderson Day. Currently, he is transforming the MLK Elementary School into the MLK FAME Community Center
