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.

Youth Lifegroups

Hungry for more of God? We want all our youth to come grow with God in a youth Lifegroup. Our Lifegroups meet during the week in various homes throughout San Diego, and are led by an Anchored Youth leader. To find a youth Lifegroup, please click here.


Anchored’s annual Desertland Camp will run from July 25th – 29th 2017 at Rough Acres Ranch, CA.  The camp, which takes place every summer and shows continual growth, is an incredible time for students to go deep with God, build lasting friendships and of course, have a blast! Take advantage of the early bird rates by registering here today!

Youth Pastor – Joel Sanders

Joel has the pleasure of being the youth pastor at All Peoples Church, leading their incredibly fun youth group, “Anchored”. Along with his wife Dana, they are passionate about calling forward a youth generation that looks like and acts like Jesus. Joel can often be found eating a cheeseburger with Dana or working on some house project together. They love to go to the beach, the zoo, or camping out in the desert. But above all, their main job is as Dad & Mom to their 4 kids Gunnar, Finley, Isabel and Noralee.
