Welcome to Anthem, a church community following Jesus in the beautiful city of Ventura.

Below you will find a few first steps to help you become familiar with our community and ways to get involved and get connected. 


Thanks so much for taking the time to learn a little more about Anthem.

Our dream since we launched in 2015, has been to be a church community in Ventura that proclaims and lives the good news and grace of Jesus Christ. To get to know us as a church, please visit our website to read about our values, teams and some other things that are really important to us. 

At Anthem you’ll find a group of real people learning to follow Jesus together. We believe everyone is welcome as they are to explore the good life Jesus so frequently teaches about.

From the parking lot, to kids check-in, to grabbing a cup of coffee, you’ll find a community of people who are genuinely glad you’re here! I’m looking forward to your involvement in our church community! 

Bert Alcorn,
Lead Pastor

Finding a church home can be tough, especially if you only visit once or twice.

Because we know how tough it can be to get a feel for a church on one or two visits, we invite you to Stick6, or, stick around for six weeks and get to know us a bit, and see if Anthem Ventura is right for you. 

During your six weeks, you will have the opportunity to check out:


Our Sunday gatherings are a central part of who we are as a community following Jesus.
