Paul and Ilene Anderson, Pastoral Care
Pastor Paul Anderson and his wife, Ilene, came to Tennessee after forty-five years of full-time ministry. Graduates of North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota, they began their ministry by traveling twelve years as evangelists in seventeen states. This was followed by a four-year pastorate at the Assemblies of God church in Crosby, North Dakota, and eight and one-half years at Alexandria Assembly of God, Alexandria, Minnesota. Their last pastorate was at Central Assembly of God in Superior, Wisconsin where Paul was lead pastor for eighteen-plus years. Now retired, Pastor Paul serves as a volunteer member of the pastoral care team at FWC.
