Guest Speakers Dan and Melody Anderson
It was our privilege to have Dan and Melody Anderson, Missionaries to Uganda as our special speakers.
They were the hosts for our last 2011 Highland Work and Witness Team in Uganda. The Andersons were also the supervisors for Eric and Aurielle West during their seven-months in Uganda.
Daniel and Melody Anderson are global missionaries for the Church of the Nazarene in Uganda. The Andersons both attended and graduated from Northwest Nazarene University.
They moved to Kansas City to attend Nazarene Theological Seminary shortly after they were married in 1977 where Dan received the Master of Divinity and also the Master of Arts in Missions in 1981.
Upon graduation, the Andersons began to plant a church in Loomis, California. They served as pastors until 1985, when they accepted their first missionary assignment to Kenya. The Andersons served until 1995 in Kisumu, Kenya, where they helped to plant and establish new churches and districts.
In 1995, they were re-assigned to Uganda. They have continued to establish the Church of the Nazarene in Uganda through the training of national district superintendents, district advisory boards, pastors, and lay people.
Dan serves as Mission Coordinator and Melody serves as Nazarene Bible College of East Africa Teacher-Training Coordinator for the Country of Uganda. The Andersons have two grown children, Becky and Dan Jr.
Dan and Melody are special friends of Highland.
