Paw Creek’s New Director of Music, Andrew Cumbow!

Greetings Paw Creek!

My name is Andrew Cumbow, but please call me Andy. I am excited to be joining your church family as your next Director of Music!
A little bit about me: I am originally from the beautiful mountains of Bristol Tennessee. I fell in love with choral music attending my first All-State choral festival my sophomore year of high school, and soon set my sights on becoming a choral conductor. I attended King College, a PCUSA Presbyterian liberal arts college in my hometown, where the director of choral activities took me under his wing. By the time I graduated King with my double major in choral music education and vocal performance, I had conducted 15 pieces of music with four different choirs, one musical, and one small choral major work as my senior gift.


While at King, I also joined the music department at First Presbyterian Church as a staff singer, and was routinely treated with conducting opportunities, and trips to the Montreat Worship and Music conference. My church membership is held there to this day. My professional career includes 12+ years of conducting and teaching music at different churches, schools, and receiving my master’s degree in choral conducting with emphasis in church music from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, where I focused on music literacy, vocal technique, choral methods, and the theology of worship and music. I moved to Charlotte in 2019, and am actively building the choral music program at Queen City STEM school here in Charlotte.


In my free time, I spend time with my friends, play table-top games, work on my home cooking skills, and compose choral music, which has seen modest success in various schools and churches over the past ten years.I am so excited to be working with Elliot, Mark, and the fabulous choir here at PCPC. I’m looking forward to getting to know you, and developing worship services which will enrich and soothe the soul as we slowly leave the trying times of the past two years more and more behind us.


Thank you for having me!

This Week at a Glance

Pastor’s Welcome

To all who visit Paw Creek Presbyterian Church through this website:

May God’s grace and love be with you this day, and with all whom you hold dear.

This time of illness, distancing and fear is difficult for all of us. Sometimes we may not know where to turn or even what to ask for. In this situation, I am grateful that you are turning to the Church of Jesus. For centuries followers of Jesus have joined together to claim his promises, even as we have reached out to share them with his world. That has been the mission of Paw Creek Church for over 210 years – since 1809; that remains our task today.

There is much information about our church and its people on this website, but for now, and during this time when our regular schedule is being re-imagined almost every day, everything you need is right here on this homepage.


And of course we are staying in touch, sharing prayers, giving encouragement and doing all the important things that are part of being a church family.  Have a look at what you find and if you want to learn more, please let me know (deh46@columbia.edu)
