When he is not in the office or meeting with congregation members, you can find him at the gym, on the golf course, walking his two Bernese Mountain Dogs, or checking out a new brewery. Please contact the church office if you are in need of any pastoral care. You can reach Pastor Anders via email at pastoranders@elvb.org.
