    Annually, Anderson attracts over 350 students, during the spring and summer, to sing on a choir he started with only one child over 18 years ago. His choir grew to over 125 students in 30 days. The choir later began to attract teenagers across the tri-state area and has since exploded, with seven Stellar Award nominations, one Dove Award nomination. Under Alphaeus' direction, the choir received two Stellar Award wins for “Best Youth Project of the Year” in 2012 and 2019. In 2015 the choir receive a Dove Award nomination.

    Host of Midday Praise 100.9 FM, Charlotte, NC

    Efficacy in youth ministry requires a unique combination of authenticity, integrity and the ability to be current without compromise. Alphaeus Anderson has proven to be effective in youth music ministry, not just evidenced by Stellar Award wins or Dove Award nominations, but by sustained interest of young people and the spiritual growth in their lives. I often tell people pursuing careers in music industry that you should never take advice from people who have not attained whatever it is you are trying to achieve, but to look to someone who has marked and sustained success in the area you are trying to grow to. Alphaeus Anderson has set a standard for youth music ministry and is someone I consider a formidable expert in this area.

    Ryan Cole

    Former Executive Director, Cindy Trimm Ministries, Atlanta, GA

    Alphaeus Anderson is an exceptional leader! He has worked with me in reaching the youth and young adults of my community. It is astounding to see him work with the next generation. His experience, passion, and unique methods are extremely effective in transforming and equipping the youth of our nation! I have experienced it first hand!

    Brandon Holt

    Phillip Carter

Gain & Maintain is thee resource for those of us who continue to look for new ways to reach our youth especially those who are in our churches.
