Our Team

Just like our church, our team represents diverse people working together to form one community.  Learn more about the Mosaic team below.

For no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor has even entered into the hearts of men, that which God has prepared for those who love him. 
1 Corinthians 2:9

Pastor Drew has served in Christian ministry for 27 years.  At the age of 24, he led the turn-around of a suburban Atlanta congregation, that saw growth of more than 400% in 5 years. He also served as the Youth & Young Adult Minister at Historic Central United Methodist Church in Atlanta, GA.  In 2002, he accepted the position of Senior Associate Pastor at Brice United Methodist Church just outside of Columbus, Ohio where he served as the congregation’s first African American staff member. Believing that diversity in worship is essential, Pastor Drew undertook the launching of Brice’s first satellite multi-ethnic church which became the Community of Faith Church, outgrowing more than 75% of all United Methodist Churches in Western Ohio in its first two years. In 2008 he accepted the call to return home and take the helm of the New Covenant Church (formerly Epworth UMC). In 2017, along with the relocation to its current site, New Covenant changed its’ name to Mosaic Church. 

Pastor Drew and his wife, Tracy Bedford Young (now for 24 years), are both natives of Savannah, GA and the parents of three sons- Ajani, Zuri and Najee Young.  Pastor Drew is a graduate of Savannah State College {University} (BBA); and an honor graduate of the Interdenominational Theological Center (M. Div.) of Atlanta, GA.  In 2008, he completed the Doctor of Ministry degree at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, OH.   And has also completed the prestigious Summer Leadership Institute of the Harvard Divinity School focusing on community and lay leadership development. Lady Tracy is a graduate of Bennett College and holds a Master of Education. She is the founding Executive Director of Mosaic Preschool and currently serves as an educator in the Savannah Chatham Public School System.

Both have a heart for service and outreach to the community. Dr. Young also has served as an Adjunct Faculty Member of the South University – College of Theology; Board Chair of the Savannah-Chatham Youth Futures Authority; the District & Conference Boards of Ordained Ministry and as Director of the Wesley Foundation Campus Ministry at Savannah State University.
