Anthem Community Church

Student Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Brian Aaby

Senior Associate

I know the word can be over-used, but “authentic” would be the word I choose in describing the team at Anthem! Not only did I see and feel the love between team members, but I also saw that they loved each other enough not to hide behind niceties but actually to speak the truth in areas needing tweaks or changes. I saw vulnerability, encouragement, and humility during my site visit, and I believe a new teammate will be welcomed into that fold very well.

The Student Pastor role itself is truly a “sky is the limit” opportunity. There just isn’t a lot happening yet, but they have a solid base of students and a team of volunteers awaiting a relational leader to come and build around a core of students who love being together.

About This Organization

Anthem Community Church (ACC), established in 2011 as a church plant from Green Valley Baptist Church, thrives in Henderson, NV. Initially meeting in elementary schools, they settled at their current location in 2018. Despite COVID challenges, their 2023 attendance records reached new heights, prompting exploration of campus expansion for the growing community.

ACC prides itself on being a welcoming church where everyone is recognized. Their mission is to help people live the truth of Jesus daily. With a vision to grow to 1000 attendees and then plant a new church, ACC offers programs to Know God, Make Friends, and Add Value. Committed to core values, they invite individuals to join and contribute to the community’s positive impact.
