Dan Anderson, 2009 Disciples Men Layman of the Year

Sunday January 23, 2010, Dan Anderson was awarded the 2009 Layman of the Year award by members of the Disciples Men's commission at Augusta Central Christian Church.

The Region of Georgia Disciples Men's Commission has been active over the years supporting the various Men's Groups throughout the state. We encourage their formation, productive activities and overall wellbeing. We manifest a portion of the wider church through yearly Retreats, Rallies and Work Gatherings. And, in so doing, there have been Men coming to the forefront - rising high - leading the way in demonstrating superb Christian character, ideals, and service to others. And, we recognize these men as Laymen of the Year.

For 19 years now, this Commission has crossed the state from north to south and from east to west saying "Thank You" to Layman of the Year award winners and trumpeting their efforts, their resolve, their loyalty and their love of Christ and His Church. For four of those 19 years the Commission has come to Augusta and in 2010 they returned an unprecedented 5th time to present the Layman of the Year Award.

Dan Anderson has been involved in the Region and District and Congregation in a variety of ways:

  • Dan has participated in Miracle Days where improvements and upgrades were made to Camp Christian, to Dublin Christian Church, and Hiltonia Christian Church.
  • Dan has served on the Georgia Disciples Regional Board and most recently the Credentials Committee.
  • Dan has served the Disciple Men's Commission many years as a District Representative helping with planning and mission, attending numerous Disciples Assemblies, and supporting Retreats and Rallies on a yearly basis.
  • Dan has been a committed volunteer at Augusta Urban Ministries, the Augusta Burn Center and Rescue Mission.
  • Dan has served as an Elder, Elder Chair, Board member, Board Chair, Property Chair, VBS supporter, Lake property worker, and Greeter.

And all the while, he's been a family man: devoted husband, loving father and adoring grandfather ... AND ...great grandfather several times over.

Congratulations to Dan Anderson, 2009 Layman of the Year.
