    Alphaeus is leading a Stellar Award Winning youth choir. He is challenging the status quo and creating a model for how youth music ministry should look in our churches.

    Underneath his brilliant musical and ministry methods are humility, a vibrant faith and peerless character. God has used Alphaeus in a mighty way to affect the lives of thousands of students. I urge you: study his methods; walk in his instruction. You will be glad you did.

    Alphaeus is anointed to do what he does. That's the only way to explain it.

    Alphaeus is the guy that really activated me. You don't know how much I look up to you. To every Pastor around the country, if your youth ministry is not what is should be, Alphaeus will train your leaders and give you the tools to accomplish what you need.

    Bishop Michael Blue

    Alphaeus Anderson has demonstrated a God-given passion and God-honoring strategies for reaching the young, our most precious ones, and developing them into disciples of Jesus Christ. Each time that he has served our ministries and our children, we are better because of the grace on his life. Blessings upon Alphaeus, his family, and his team!

    Dr Toney C Parks

    SC Congress of Christian Education

    I have had the opportunity to observe Alphaeus as a talented youth and a gifted  ministry leader for over 20 years. The upstate community is fortunate to have such a talented innovative technological asset serving our church families.

    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.

    Alphaeus Anderson has been impacting the lives of young people for years! He has a unique ability to speak into their lives and connect through the most basic of languages! Thousands of young people all over the world have been impacted by his gifts and talents. Its a true blessing to see all that has been accomplished and then know that there is SOOO much MORE ahead through Gain & Maintain!

    Alphaeus is unbelievable and he is anointed for what he does with children.

    Phillip Carter

    Bro Alphaeus Anderson and his team has put together materials, training modules and a plan to help our young people develop spiritually and musically. 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. I tip my hat to brother Anderson for his steadfast work and for caring enough to put this together. His integrity and consistency speaks for itself.
