Dave and Barb Anderson will perform in concert at 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 2 at Shalom Lutheran Church in Alexandria. Their music is a blend of contemporary, gospel, and traditional Christian songs, often including children's or Sunday School songs.
During the concert, Dave and Barb share their personal experiences and what has become known around the world as “The Rescue Story.” In 1993, God used heroic men to rescue Dave and Barb and five others from 36-degree waters after their plane crashed into the Bering Sea, returning from a missionary and humanitarian mission in the Russian Far East. All seven men and women survived. The rescue story points to the God which rescues men and women from overwhelming circumstances. Learn more at www.therescuestory.com.
The Andersons have been in lay ministry in the Lutheran church for more than four years. Dave laid the groundwork for what became Lutheran Youth Encounter and later Lutheran Youth Alive. Under Dave and Barb's leadership, Fellowship Ministries has provided the church with worship resources including 5,200 concerts, nearly one million songbooks, and a few hundred worship and music conferences and seminars.
They are currently launching Shepherd's Canyon Retreat, a special counseling and retreat center, located near Phoenix, Arizona. By mid-2009, Shepherd's Canyon Retreat will provide counseling and renewal for hurting church workers and their spouses. The free-will offering received at the concert will benefit the Shepherd's Canyon Retreat project.
