Anthem Ventura was planted 2.5 years ago, sent out by Anthem Thousand Oaks & Anthem Camarillo, and led by Bert and Sherry Alcorn and their team. We had a passion and call to reach the Downtown & Midtown communities in Ventura. 

Right before our 1-year anniversary, all our gear to make Sunday Gatherings happen was stolen. In the aftermath, we were graciously offered a home on Sunday evenings at another church in downtown (The River - We love them!), where we could meet for Sunday gatherings, use all of their gear, and prep for what was next. After a lot of prayer and searching, Anthem Ventura is moving to a new home! 

In addition to the welcomed time change, our new facility will be an amazing opportunity to invest in the Downtown community, even more, have a space that feels a bit more like us, and press into what God is calling us to in Downtown Ventura: help people find their way back to God.

Pray

We are doubling down on the call God gave to reach downtown Ventura by moving right to the core. We believe that if anything of significance will happen, it will be birthed in prayer. Please pray for our church, our move, and the people we'll be reaching.

Help us re-launch

There are a lot of ways you can help and if you'd like to get on the ground, and help us as we move by serving on a Sunday, please reach out to Bert.

We’ve created an Amazon Wishlist containing many of the items we’ll need for the move, including kids supplies, books, first impressions supplies, sound and video gear, and more. If you'd like to help extend the impact of the money received from our insurance payout, and allow us to put that money toward furthering the mission in Ventura and being generous by blessing other people, you can do that here.
