The Shepherd’s Center of St. Andrews is a non-profit organization providing educational, fellowship, and volunteer opportunities for people fifty and above. It is an affiliate of the national interfaith organization, Shepherd’s Centers of America, which was founded in Kansas City in 1972.

Our goal is to help seniors to enjoy a vibrant and active life. Our programs are intended to:

  • Enlighten
  • Entertain
  • Engage
  • Energize

The Shepherd’s Center of St. Andrews currently has approximately 300 members. We are a primarily volunteer organization run for seniors by seniors. The governing body is a Board of Directors and four officers (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer), all current members elected by the membership at large. A part-time Executive Director oversees the day-to-day running of the Center, under the guidance of the Board and officers, who set overall policy. Thus, we at the Center make all decisions about the Center and we can adapt quickly to the needs and wants of our members. The membership at large is widely consulted about classes and activities.

The Shepherd’s Center of St. Andrews is housed at Ashland United Methodist Church, 2600 Ashland Road, Columbia, South Carolina 29210.
