Pastor Andrew and
Sue Matthews
 
 
 

    

     Hi, my name is Andrew. I have been the pastor of Zion since July of 2013 when my wife Sue and I moved to the Eastern Shore. Sue is my partner in ministry and teaches an adult Sunday School class at church. She also teaches at Nandua Middle School. From day one we loved living on the Eastern Shore. We love the lifestyle here: the access to the water and beaches, the clear night skies, and slower pace of things. Most of all though, we love the people that live here and the passion they share for all things Eastern Shore.

     I have been a pastor for over 30 years and still love what I do. I would characterize my preaching style as expository narrative: I attempt to preach from a biblical text of scripture and make it relative to our lives today through real life stories that add flesh and emotion to the Word of God. I have always thought it did not make much sense to keep preaching if people do not relate to what I was saying. It is my life goal to help people better understand God’s revealed Word in the Bible, and to walk with them as they try to apply scripture to life in this ever-changing world we live in. My wife and I value every life God allows us to minster with here on the Eastern Shore. We also realize every life has a story that is written page by page, chapter by chapter, and is revealed as that person wants others to read their life story. We would love to know your life story . . . or at least see the first page when you are ready.

With Sincere Love,

Andrew & Sue Matthews
