Richard Mathews - Director of Student Ministries
I was born in Redding, California in 1995; this is where I spent most of my life. From 2015-2017 I attended Calvary Chapel Bible College where I graduated with an Associates of Applied Sciences of Biblical Studies. I then went to attend Grand Canyon University where I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelors of Christian Studies. Currently I am enrolled at Grand Canyon University for a Masters of Christian Leadership. My wife and I have been married for 3 years. I have been serving in children’s ministry since the seventh grade. When we moved to Florida a little over a year ago, we attended Grace Family church in Ybor. While it was a drive, we consider the church to be worthy of sacrifice and something we were happy to do. There I interned and oversaw small groups of varying degrees. In California I also led a small group at an elderly apartment facility. We were going through Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. I love reading and being outdoors. Something I am passionate about and really look forward to is building biblical literacy and disciplines to the children’s ministry.

Marvin Hawkins - Contemporary Worship Leader
November of 1969 I was born in Kentucky, though I’ve never lived there. It was Mitchell, Indiana I called home until 1974. Florida has been my home ever since. Within a few years I had found my true calling at the Church of the Nazarene in lovely Wimauma, Florida. I began to perform there as a child, singing in the choir, but when my voice changed, I began learning how to play all the other instruments of an orchestra. Performing as a musician in church and in orchestra continued throughout my high school years. Before college I graduated top of my class in advanced criminal justice studies in Lake City Florida. 1988 found me attending ITT in Tampa, FL where I received an Associate's Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology. January 1991, I began dating someone who would eventually become my wife Michele Woofter, a fellow musician. In September 2001 we were married at the Excalibur Castle in Las Vegas, Nevada. We spent the next 20 years in Fort Lauderdale, where I was responsible for inventory on a weekly basis at Guitar Center, where I was the operations manager, and my store had the least amount of inventory shrinkage on the east coast. I attended numerous churches in south Florida as a musician, most notably downtown Harbor church. In 2021 my wife received a job offer to work in Clearwater, so she took the job here, staying with her best friend while I continued to work in Fort Lauderdale until I found work in Clearwater, and we were able to find a house in Port Richey for our cats and one dog (that thinks he is a cat). I was standing in front of Saint Andrews Presbyterian Church, and I asked God if I was doing the right thing, and at that moment a falcon appeared in the sky, flying in a circle over my head. Wasn’t very long after that moment that I find myself before you today, so thankful that I listened to God and found my way to Saint Andrews Presbyterian Church.
