In 2019, Hannah and Nick left their home and family in Wisconsin and put their financial future on the line so that lives would be transformed through the love of Jesus. For five years, people have not only found Jesus, but they found a family in Anchor, a multiethnic and women-empowering church.


Since the start of Anchor, we have met on Sunday evenings. But, to establish ourselves for the years to come, we have to make the move of relaunching Anchor to Sunday mornings.


"Every church I know that started on Sunday evenings moved to Sunday mornings" - Pastor Mark Albrecht.


"Every church I know that has not transitioned to Sunday mornings has closed their doors" - Pastor Gary Grogan.


We will need dedicated people to pull this off!

  • Make a powerful difference in people's lives.

  • Hone your social and technical skills.

  • Supercharge your faith.

  • Share unforgettable moments with new friends.

  • Experience the thrill of starting something impactful.

  • Build a community that reflects heaven’s diversity.

  • Champion Jesus' vision for empowering women.

I like how Anchor takes time to get to know people individually. They really put a lot of effort into building the Anchor community.
