From day one, Anthem Church has wanted to do something unique to mark our anniversary. As much as we all love cake, we wanted it to be something that really expressed the heart of God.
We can’t think of any better way to do that than to call on God’s people to give a massive amount of money to compelling and effective kingdom works that impact this world for the name of Jesus.
Each year, we celebrate our anniversary by taking every penny that comes in that week and giving it away.
God has been generous to us, so we dream of becoming a church marked by radical generosity.

The reproducing church
We want to celebrate our birthday each year by giving away the most money that we have ever given away
We want to use a moment of celebration to rescue kids out of slavery, to equip Nepali pastors with tools to continue preaching the Gospel and to plant churches domestically and around the world. We want to fund the Kingdom of God.
So we Celebrate Generosity.
