About the Academy

The Anchor Academy seeks to "equip the saints for works of ministry" (Ephesians 4:12) through deliberate Bible study and discipleship.

We continue to offer resources for congregational teaching and leadership development, including: CrossBearersDiscipleMakersNetMenders, eMANcipators, MeatEaters, BodyBuilders, and now Caleb Corps.
