Meet the Board

Here is more about Dr. McGowen from the The Operation Andrew Group 'Staff' section:
"Dr. McGowan, a founding member of the Operation Andrew Board of Trustees, assumed the Presidency after he 'retired' as Senior Pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church where he served for over 15 years. He served as an officer in U.S. Army intelligence following graduation from Davidson College.
"Before entering Columbia Theological Seminary, he served for several years with the Office of Naval Intelligence. Now, after over forty years as pastor of a local church, he enjoys focusing on his passion of seeing walls that separate Christians broken down so that the fulfillment of prayer of Jesus (John 17:21) might be evident for all to see.
"While remaining active in the Presbyterian Church in America, he ministers broadly to the Body of Christ in Nashville and across the nation. He and his wife Alice have been married for 50 years and delight in God's gift of four children and sixteen grandchildren."
