Global & Local Ministries

Global Missionaries

We support several missionaries, some of whom came out of Anchor.

  • Sharon serves in Central Asia at a Christian bookstore.
  • Jennifer serves in Macau.
  • Anna serves with UW Sports Ministry.

Neighborhood Churches

We have a great relationship with other churches in our neighborhood, and do some things together.

  • In 2008, we joined forces with some Presbyterian churches to build a home for a Somali familiy through Habitat for Humanity; we joined forces again the following year for another family, and will do so again this year!
  • Since 2007, we’ve held joint Lenten services on Sunday nights, rotating between the churches. In recent years we’ve met with a local judge, as well as local non-profit org leaders; we’ve been learning how we can best serve our neighbors.
  • Since 2011, we have held a community worship event on Labor Day Weekend in Hamilton Park, right in the center of our neighborhood. We average over 200 people at this event!

The neighborhood churches in the 46808 zipcode that have been working together:
First Mennonite, Grace Presbyterian, Three Rivers Wesleyan, Trinity United Methodist, New Zion Tabernacle,
Trinity Evangelical Lutheran, Faith United Presbyterian, North Highlands Church of Christ, Main Street Nazarene

Anchor also partners with the other United Brethren churches in Fort Wayne and Allen County: Emmanuel Community, Union Chapel UB, South Scipio UB, and Zanesville UB.

Ministry Partnerships

We are committed to partnering with other local ministries to better serve one another and our neighbors.

Ministry Coalition

We are a founding member of the Fort Wayne Fatherhood Coalition. Seven local organizations and churches came together at the request of Judge Charles Pratt to create programs and resources to help dads become better fathers. It began as a partnership with Indiana Youth Institute; the coalition now also includes: Trinity United Methodist Church, Stillwater Retreat, Faith Based Mentoring, YMCA – Youth Services Bureau.
