Starkdale to welcome return of Christian recording artist

Starkdale Presbyterian Church, located at 4600 Sunset Blvd., Steubenville, next to Wendy’s, will welcome the return of national recording artist Jeff Anderson on Aug. 25 at 6:30 p.m. for a free concert

Anderson, a worship leader and singer-songwriter who resides in Columbus, is an acoustic guitar player/singer “with a passionate heart for God and his people,” according to a church press release.

He is known for his Christian hit, “Open My Eyes,” which charted top 10 and was nominated for a first-round Grammy. He also was a contestant on the TV show “The Voice” this year.

“Jeff visited us in May, and believe me, the performance was breathtaking. Jeff really connected with the youth of our congregation as well as attendees of all ages. We knew then that we had to bring him back and spread the word about his awesome ministry,” said Starkdale’s Pastor Bobbyjon Bauman, who is in charge of the even.

In addition to the free concert, the church will be celebrating back to school with a free gift to the first 150 children in attendance.

After the concert, there will be complimentary pizza and pop available to all in the fellowship hall along with a meet-and-greet opportunity with Anderson.

In anticipation of a large crowd, there will be additional parking at Riesbeck’s with a shuttle service to the church.
