Meet
The Pastors

Pastors Nick and Hannah have been married since June of 2011. When it comes to church, they have been through it all - the good and the bad, the hope and the hurt. They moved from their hometown of Kenosha, WI in order to start Anchor in 2019. Hannah graduated from Moody Bible Institute and loves cuddling with Albert (their dog), going on hikes, and doing the latest HIIT work out. Nick graduated from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and loves obsessing over Marvel theories, listening to podcasts and running.

Our Mission

At the heart of our mission is a powerful belief: that church should be an extension of Jesus' ministry, which included empowering women, embracing diversity, and putting people first. 

 

We envision a world where your daughter, and every young girl, will rise knowing her worth and embracing her inherent dignity.

 

We cherish the richness that comes from a multi-ethnic tapestry, where you will find a treasure trove of perspectives to broaden your horizons, challenge your assumptions, and inspire personal growth.

 

In a world that often prioritizes institutions over individuals, we stand firm in our commitment to put people first. Our collective strength lies in the bonds we forge, in the sense of belonging we create, and in our mutual care for one another.

 

Together, we can shape a world that better reflects the love and priorities of Jesus.

What does Anchor Kids teach? 

The Bible is the most amazing book ever written, and we strive to bring its stories to life through creative activities and discussions that keep kids engaged. We want every child to love God's Word and understand the value of applying it to their lives. We know they'll have fun each week as they learn about who God is through games, activities, and video teaching. All of this can't happen without our amazing volunteers.

As of right now, Anchor Kids is for ages 2-9 years old.
