Since its inception, Operation Andrew Group has been about bringing together pastors across areas of difference, not to hash out theology or praxis, but to be in relationship with one another.


What started in a room to bring people to a history event at Nissan Stadium has gone through several iterations, from hosting Pastor & Spouse Honor Banquets, gatherings, LINC Cohorts, and more.

Building on the meaningful relationships built by pastors, United4Pastors began by listening to the people of the city through the State of Nashville study and bringing pastors together around the data, so that we can live out the Nehemiahian moment of building our city.
