“Belonging, Connection, Care and Loving Accountability are
all keys to a successful Ministerial Fellowship. Anchor
Ministerial Fellowship prides itself on being much more than
a credentialing body offering ministers of the gospel a place
to ‘put down roots’. Our much loved “Grow Days” will
inspire and equip you as you lead and other events such as
the Annual Conference and Regional Gatherings will deepen
your connection with other Anchor Members.
Thank you for considering joining Anchor Ministerial Fellowship”
