find your anthem







For 20 years Anthem has been training up men and women to find their anthem and be leaders wherever God sends them. The goal of the program is to set young leaders on the path of success for the rest of their lives. Success means understanding who Jesus is and what He teaches (head), to know the love of God in Jesus and be able to share that love with others (heart), and finally to have the skills to make this world a better place wherever God calls them (hands). The program is run out of the Church of Living Water by my wife and I, with the help of our admin Kaleen Mercer. If you are a young adult ages 18-25 apply today and see what God could do through you and in you over the next 9 months.

Anthem at Living Water is a leadership development program designed to empower and instruct young adults who are passionate about following Jesus. Anthem is geared towards students ages 18-25. Students wholeheartedly pursue God’s call on their life through discovering lives of meaning and ministry. 

Anthem is a full-time, 9-month program (September-June) where students are immersed into three pools of learning: hands-on training, curricular studies, and personal discipleship.

Students serve full-time at Living Water and grow exponentially in their understanding of God, themselves, and others. They deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Word of God, develop disciplines in both personal and public arenas of life, and gain confidence in God’s unique call on their life. At the end of the year, Anthem students and interns go on a mission trip either nationally or internationally. 

One thing that sets Anthem apart from other discipleship programs is its focus on the local church. We have been called to develop young ministry leaders who will be able to serve the Lord faithfully and fruitfully in local church settings.
