After considering many sites, the committee, elected by the church membership, bought the former Dean schoolhouse which stood on land between what is now Baker Road and New York State Route 417 on the Burch family property.  The church people transported the schoolhouse to its present location on Rochambeau Ave.  Rev. Harley A. Beckwith (grandfather of the current Secretary – Rose Mary Billings Munkes) was instrumental in getting the schoolhouse moved to Rochambeau Avenue. For a time the church had no basement sub-structure, but, as the church grew, the need for more space prompted the committee to enlarge.  Stories have been told of how the Lord supplied the money to pay for this project.  Added improvements over the years, including a huge church renovation in the early 1990’s, have been made.  During the ministry of Rev. Bruce A. Crossley, the church building was doubled in size, adding two additional Sunday school rooms, furnace room, an extra bathroom, and doubled the size of the sanctuary.  A parking lot was added in the rear of the property.

In October of 1972, the church purchased a parsonage for future pastors and their families.  The property purchased was the former Ruger house on 8 Baker Street in the village.  The house was repainted and repairs were made.  Over the years, an addition was made to the property.  The property was sold in the 1990’s, as the current pastor, Rev. Bruce Crossley purchased the Given’s farm in Independence and the church purchased a home located at One Rochambeau Avenue, the former home of the Everett Davis family, for use as a  new parsonage.

The Andover Christian and Missionary Alliance church has had over twenty pastors since its inception in 1939 until the present 2009.

Over the years, the Church has strived to be a blessing to the community.  The church is active in offering vacation bible school, missionary conferences, clothing give aways and is an active participant in the Lenten Community Services.  The church has hosted Pulpit-in-the Park services at the American Legion Park many summers and has hosted special musical outreach services on the school lawn during the 4th of July celebrations.  Although small in numbers, the Andover Christian and Missionary Alliance Church continues to be a vital part of the religious heritage of Andover.
