Sycamore RPC’s Minister


Shawn Anderson grew up in Northwestern PA but has lived in Michigan, New York, and briefly in Washington and Texas. He professed faith in Christ in the summer of 1996 and he considers 1 Tim. 1:15 to be a text central to his life in Christ, “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.”

Prior to being called to serve God’s Word at Sycamore RPC in 2013, Shawn practiced as a registered nurse for 8 years, giving him practical life experience in preparation for the ministry. Along with his A.S.N. (Memorial Hospital SN, 2005), he holds a B.A. in Religious Studies (SUNY-Albany, 2007), and an M.Div. (RPTS, 2013).

He is married to Tammy and they are raising four young disciples in the fear and knowledge of the Lord, who supplies abundant daily grace. The Andersons enjoy fellowship around coffee and food, walks through the city, visiting playgrounds, and reading together.

Shawn also participates in a weekly podcast, The Jerusalem Chamber, in which he is involved in a round table discussion on the Westminster Confession of Faith with three other RPCNA ministers, Kyle Borg, Nathan Eshelman, and Joel Wood.
