Fourth Street Pastor Receives Military Promotion

Story by Lauren Davis

Andrew R. Harewood, DMin, Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army, was recently promoted to the new Logistics, Information and Resources manager for the United States Army Reserve Command Chaplains Office. Harewood also pastors the Allegheny East Conference's Fourth Street-Friendship church in Washington, D.C.

His family, friends and church members recently gathered at the Pentagon Memorial Chapel in Washington, D.C., to celebrate his proud accomplishment. At the ceremony, Harewood called each guest by name and thanked them each for their support. Harewood also spoke of quiet consistency and basked in the experience of walking in the supreme will of God. Speakers included Barry Black, the U.S. Senate chaplain and a Seventh-day Adventist minister.

Harewood previously served as the deputy Pentagon chaplain. Since he enlisted in 1990, Harewood has made constant climbs in his military status and has deployed to Central America, Iraq and Afghanistan. With more than 20 years of dedicated military service under his belt, he has received many awards, including the Meritorious Unit Award, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, the NATO Medal and the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal.

A family man with four sons and an accomplished wife, Harewood wears many hats. He is also an ordained pastor in the Adventist Church and holds a Doctorate of Ministry from Howard University in Washington, D.C.

“ I am very proud to have him as my pastor and to lead me. I thank God for sending him to Fourth Street,” remarked Deborah Stewart, a faithful member of the thriving church family.
