Anthem Student Ministries exists to GROW the Kingdom deep and wide, to CONNECT students with God and with others, and to SERVE as the hands and feet of Jesus in the world.
Our ministry takes its purpose from two places in scripture, The Great Commandment and The Great Commission.
The Great Commandment: 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God (WORSHIP) with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself (MINISTRY).’40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40
The Great Commission: 19 Therefore go and make disciples (EVANGELISM) of all nations, baptizing them (FELLOWSHIP) in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them (DISCIPLESHIP) to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28-19:20
We want to see students grab ahold of their faith, make it their own, and thrive in life because of their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We feel called to be intentional with every aspect of our ministry to ensure that we did our part in making this a reality. That’s why we follow these 5 Purposes:
EVANGELISM | DISCIPLESHIP | FELLOWSHIP | WORSHIP | MINISTRY
To be the most effective in fulfilling our mission, we’ve recognized the need to minister to teenagers “where they are”. That being the case, our ministry is split by age groups Middle School Ministry (6:30pm on Wednesdays) and High School Ministry (5:00pm on Sundays.) The purpose is the same for each group but approached in different ways.
If you have any questions about our ministry, feel free to contact Pastor Andy Watts for more details.
