Our Story

theANCHORchurch is about new beginnings – a new church and a fresh start for the future. theANCHORchurch is launching in January of next year. Our story began back in 2015 when Lead Pastors Alex and Brooke Graves began to feel God leading them to step away from the campus ministry they loved to start a church in Lawrence. In the weeks and months that followed, God began to open doors and stir the hearts of others about the preferred future over Lawrence that included theANCHORchurch.

The story of theANCHORchurch is one of dreaming, belonging, creating and loving. It is centered on Jesus and anchored on God’s word. It is a story that does not settle for the status quo, but looks to the future with hope. There is hope for everyone and in every situation. Today the sun can set of your issues but it can rise tomorrow on your future possibilities. theANCHORchurch is here for you and your family!
