WORSHIP PASTOR, Shake Anderson

On February 1st of 2010, Pastor Shake began serving us in the Worship Ministry here at Generations Church.  Making His praises more glorious than ever before, the Lord's Name is being lifted higher and higher in our community through his leadership and service.

Sam "Shake"Anderson - from Louisville, KY - started recording at 9 years old and touring at the same age.  As a versatile bassist, guitarist, keyboardist and pianist, this gifted singer and songwriter is a musician's musician.

Shake - as his friends call him - has recorded or toured with a variety of Christian artists; including Crystal Lewis, Anointed, Bryan Duncan, Israel Houghton, New Breed and Avalon; as well as many secular artists like Bruce Hornsby, Aretha Franklin, Indigo Girls, Curtis Mayfield, Aliyah, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, and The Impressions. 

This talented man has several gold and platinum albums for his work on some well known movies; such as Blue Streak, Dr. Doolittle, and Austin Powers.  He has been blessed to be able to have played in some of the greatest concert halls in the world; like Carnegie Hall, The Apollo Theatre, Symphony Music Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Heinekin Music Hall, Nashville's Ryman Auditorium and the Buordone Theatre in Frankfurt, Germany.  Recently he produced, played and sang in a Gospel Recording Concert at the Naomi Bruton Mainstage in the Dallas Convention Center.  (Be watching for a CD release of that event, where all the songs were written and co-written by our wonderful Worship Pastor). 

As a songwriter he was signed to Warner Chappel Music for 6 years and has produced and recorded for other great labels and artists.

Since coming here, Shake has produced and recorded a Live CD – called MEDICINE - with The Black Academy Of Arts And Letters at the Dallas Convention Center; featuring music that all written or co-written by himself.  (This musical evening was filmed and later broadcasted on Christmas Eve of 2010 from DFW’s Channel 21).  The Medicine Album - which was released in 2011 and is now available at Walmart - was nominated for a 2012 Dove Award.

We are blessed to have a Worship Pastor like Shake Anderson, with a big heart for God and the skills to match.  Granbury has been impacted by his ministry at several city-wide events.

Pastor Shake is married to Karen who is a great help to his ministry and our congregation.  They live in Crowley with Samiel, their amazing son.
