Amber Eason
Youth Director

I have great memories of my years participating in Church youth groups and I am thankful I now have the opportunity and privilege of giving back and helping guide a new generation through their middle and high schools years. 

Amber is married to James and they have two children, Lily and Gene.



Carl Barnhardt

Carl and his wife Connie continue their sweetheart relationship that began in the seventh grade and has carried them through twenty years of military service, living in five states, earning college degrees while working full-time jobs, raising two children, and have been blessed with four grandchildren. They have had the opportunity to serve as the pastoral family for three congregations over twenty years of ministry prior to coming to Andrew Church.

Carl believes it is a sin to make worship boring; he preaches, teaches, and lives that the Bible is a book for everyday life! He earned his Master of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary, and he also holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Brenau University.
