• A Family of Churches

    Anthem Ventura is part a family of churches helping people find their way back to God. The Anthem family of churches is united around shared mission, vision, values, and submission to the Lordship of King Jesus. In our cities, we are working to obey Jesus in helping people find their way back to God.

Elder Installation Sunday Recap

Sunday, January 12, we gathered as a church body to install our first home-grown elder team! Sunday was a momentous day in the life of our church. 

What's Coming Up

Annual Church-Wide Survey

If Anthem Ventura is your church home, please help us review 2019, plan for 2020, and get a better picture of our church family by filling out our annual all-church survey. If there are multiple adults in your household, please have each adult over 18 fill out their own survey. All responses are anonymous. 

Anthem Anywhere

Anthem Anywhere is a Sunday where the body of Christ at the Anthem family of churches will be gathering in homes, parks, coffee shops, breweries, and a variety of other venues around Ventura County and beyond, to worship Jesus, study the Scriptures, take communion, and pray together.  

We are excited to take a Sunday and specifically remind ourselves that “the church” is not a building or an event, but a gathered group of believers in Jesus Christ. 

More details coming soon but save the date and if you already know that you would like to host a group, let us know!

Day: Jan 26

There will be no Sunday Gathering in DT/VTA this week.

Laundry Love

Laundry Love is a regular opportunity to come alongside people who are struggling financially by assisting them with their laundry. We partner with Midtown Coin Laundry in cleaning clothes and linens of low-income or no-income families and individuals. We see the laundromat as a place where strangers become friends, kids are known by name, hope is being hustled, and the worth of every human being is acknowledged and celebrated.

Location: Midtown Coin Laundry
Day: Jan 28
Time: 6:30-8:30 PM

14 Days of Prayer & Fasting

We are going to start the year together as a church with a season of prayer and fasting as we believe and seek the Lord for breakthrough in our lives, in our church, and in our city. 

Days: Jan 27 – Feb 9

2020 Bible Reading Plan

Throughout 2020, we are reading the Bible together. We believe biblical literacy is a crucial facet of our life with Jesus. The Bible Reading plan is about learning the Scriptures through a daily commitment to opening your heart and mind to God. This is a discipline essential to all disciples of Jesus. 

2020 Reading List

January is a great time for a fresh start and a fresh commitment to growing in God's word and growing in our apprenticeship to Jesus. Along with starting up a new bible reading plan, learning the Scriptures through a daily commitment to opening your heart and mind to God, there are some amazing books to be reading this year to ready and prepare ourselves for what Jesus has for us this year. 

Save the date: Vision Sunday 2020

Each year we gather together as a family to rally around where God is taking us this year. We call this day 'Vision Sunday' and we highly encourage eveyrone who calls Anthem home to make a point to be here for this direction-setting day! 

Location: 482 E. Santa Clara St.
Day: Feb 9
Time: 10 Am

Giving & Generosity

  • Giving at anthem

    Giving cheerfully and sacrificially is a part of worship at Anthem. We give generously because God has first been generous to us. We dream of becoming a church marked by radical generosity. Ten percent of every dollar goes directly to supporting compassion and church planting work both globally and locally.
