Anthem Campout

The Anthem Campout is a good time with your friends and family, enjoying God’s creation over Memorial Day Weekend. We have the entire group campsite for the weekend, so you can explore the campground, play in the Santa Ynez River that runs through the campsite, go on a hike, or just relax and play some games.

On Sunday, May 26, we will not be gathering in our normal location in Downtown Ventura, instead, we’ll be gathering at the campsite for outdoor worship & teaching. If you cannot come for the weekend, please do join us for the day!

Location: Sage Hill Campground 3505 Paradise Rd. Santa Barbara, CA 93105
Dates: May 23-27
Cost: $12 per person + $5 per vehicle per night

2018 Alpha.001.jpeg


Anthem Ventura is hosting Alpha, an open and informal dialogue about faith, the person of Jesus, and what it all means. We want to hear your thoughts and questions as we explore these themes together without the pressured atmosphere that usually comes with these conversations.

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore life and the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. It’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together. Whether you’re just checking it out, new to faith, or coming back to church you are invited. Everyone is welcome.

Location: 228 E. Thompson Blvd. Suite B, Ventura, CA
Days: Wednesdays, Jun 5–Aug 14
Time: 7-9pm (Dinner included)
Cost: None!

Intro to Anthem

Intro to Anthem is a great chance for everyone who is new (or newish) to connect with some of the leaders, hear our story and learn how to get plugged in and connected to Anthem.

We discuss a bit of who we are and leave time for any questions you may have about the church. Even if you have been around our church for a few months, we highly encourage anyone who hasn't been to one of these times to join us.

Location: 482 E. Santa Clara St. Ventura, CA
Day: Jun 2

Anthem Denver Prayer Tour

The Anthem Denver team is inviting the entire family of churches to join them in visiting and praying for the city. As we walk Denver and its neighborhoods, we’ll seek to understand God’s heart for the people there, to discern spiritual strongholds, and to call upon the Lord to bring spiritual, relational, and cultural renewal to Denver through the gospel of Jesus Christ. The tour will include earnest prayer, exploration of the city, teachings from different leaders, times of worship together, and a ton more.

Location: Denver, CO
Days: Jul 25–27
Cost: $50 + flights, accommodations, and most meals

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.
