Biographies of Dave & Barb Anderson
After 36 years of concert ministry, Barb Anderson has retired from "living out of a suitcase" as she has done for 1/3-1/2 of every month. Barb is now working in the ministry's home-office and living a more normal life. Here is the "Dave and Barb story" as it has been stated in the past: Dave and Barb Anderson are ministers of the Gospel in song and the spoken word. Dave is President of Fellowship Ministries, based in Tempe, Arizona. Fellowship Ministries is a non-profit, para-church organization, founded in 1975, which served as a resource for the advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ through worship and music. For many years Fellowship Ministries sponsored worship and music conferences and seminars, published worship resources (including The Other Songbook, now 560,000 copies in print and The Best of the Best in Contemporary Praise and Worship, 180,000 copies in print), and sponsors the Anderson's concerts.
Beginning in 1975, Dave and Barb's concert ministry has included well over 5,600 evening worship concerts and weekend worship services in churches throughout America and in a number of other countries including Russia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Papua New Guinea, The Philippines, New Zealand, and more than 20 times to Australia.
