Anchor Chapel began as a vision for a church without religious walls to hurdle in order to get to Christ. Our heart is that Anchor Chapel is a place of "Hope for every soul" where people of all races, experiences, and ages can experience the unrelenting love of Jesus.
From the beginning of Anchor Chapel, we have made it a priority to seek God first in prayer. We do this collectively as a church in January and August through 21 Days of Prayer. These two months are intentional, as they begin new seasons of the year. Together, we faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our church and our world.
Pastors Josh & Brooke were the Student pastors at Living Word Church in Houma, LA for 6.5 years and built a team that brought the student ministry from averaging 15 to 150 students. Our years in ministry as student pastors have been the ride of our lives. We believe that no matter the age or stage, our passion for Jesus should never die. Our hope for Anchor Chapel is to be a place where passion for Jesus and fearlessly following Him are the norm. Pastor Josh also has a background in church media and production so he's passionate about creating outlets for creativity in the church. Pastor Brooke has led as a Worship Pastor for many years, so Anchor will always emphasize the importance of excellence in our worship.
John and Stacy Wilson were the children's pastors at the Baton Rouge Dream Center for 5 years, and worked with a team that reached into the hurting community to expose the children to Jesus and His truth. Our passions are children and outreach, and we believe that our children are never too young to understand God's Word and to put their faith into action. As the children's pastors at Anchor Chapel, we hope to come alongside parents to strengthen and extend the Biblical foundation that families have provided.
Life is better when it's lived in a community of like minded people. We believe that Anchor Groups are a source of growth, friendships, and ministry opportunity. So don't be a hermit! Head over to Anchor Connections or sign up here and get yourself in an Anchor Group today!
