Meet
The Pastors

Hi!

 

We're Nick and Hannah, the pastors and founders of Anchor Church! We've been married since 2011 and moved to C-U in 2019 to start Anchor Church without knowing anyone in the area. Then, we got to meet all of the amazing people who are a part of Anchor today!

 

We believe that you are uniquely wired by God for a specific purpose, and that unless you figure out what that purpose is, you'll never be truly fulfilled.

 

No one else on earth can fulfill the unique calling that God has for you.

 

No one else can fulfill your assignment. 

 

Maybe you know exactly what your purpose is, maybe you've been running from it for a while, or maybe you have absolutely no idea where to even start looking for it...

 

But we want to help you find it.

 

Because we believe that the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who actually do...

Hannah and Nick Brzozowski, Pastors at Anchor Church in Champaign-Urbana, IL

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.
