Anchored Youth

Our Anchored Youth Ministry is focused on 7th-12th graders and is an incredible environment for youth to encounter Jesus and grow with other friends on that same journey. Biblical and relevant teaching, games, food and music forms part of the typical Sunday gathering!

Anchored gathers every Sunday night from 6pm-8pm at 5555 University Avenue, San Diego CA 92105.
