Anthem's annual discipleship conference designed for us to equip and empower each other in focused areas of Kingdom Life.

Anthem Summit is a moment for our family of churches to unite around the vision and mission God has given us and for the body to equip each other for life and ministry.

We will unite together in our ‘main sessions'; worshipping together, praying together, learning from different speakers (from inside and outside of Anthem), and mobilizing as a church for the year ahead.

The body will equip each other throughout the day in 'breakout sessions,’ where different people, like YOU, with different life experiences will be sharing their stories, training and equipping the body for life and the work of ministry.

Our Focus This Year

Anthem Summit is quickly becoming one of our favorite moments. It is a space for our family of churches to gather together, worship Jesus, learn from many voices and set direction together.

If you were around last year, you may remember that our focus was on intentional mission in our everyday lives from the commission Jesus gave in Matthew 28 for us to "go". 

This year, as we dive into what it means to be disciples of Jesus, we want to focus on another piece of that commission: obedience to Jesus. So we are asking the questions:

What does it mean to live Holy Spirit empowered lives of obedience? Where does it start? How do Jesus' commands apply to family, work, finances, relationships, and service? What does it look like to pursue lives of obedience so we can teach others also?
