Our Why

Anchor Christian University aims to amplify the reproducing mission of the local church worldwide through faith-infused biblical training and education.

Our Mission

To deliver challenging, effective, and practical biblical and professional education to students within the front line contexts to which they are called.

Our Vision

To take biblical higher education to the front lines of ministry and leadership using a distance education model to produce graduates who are biblically grounded, faith-driven, relevantly experienced, and highly competent Kingdom citizens.



We are here, not to replace what the church is doing, but to help it do it bigger, better, faster, more.

Local Church Worldwide

The local church is the means through which God will accomplish his mission in the world.  It is the front line for equipping the saints for the work of the ministry (Eph. 4:12), a core element of making disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19-20).


Our hope is ANCHORED in Jesus, our forerunner (Heb. 6:19-20).  We have confidence in His sufficiency (Heb. 11:1).  We seek to please God, believing both that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him (Heb. 11:6).  We live and learn from this place of faith.

Biblical Training & Education

We believe the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God.  Therefore, it is absolutely true and the final authority for what we believe and how we live our lives. 

“…I felt the Lord leading me to find something that melded practical service with all the education I was receiving at college. So I applied and jumped into this year-long frenzy of teamwork, event-planning, teaching, and discipleship. Alongside Ben and Krista, I was confronted with the rigors of full-time ministry, and at times it felt overwhelming.

But when I saw students develop into leaders and disciplers of their own, I knew that God’s gospel purposes were being fulfilled and it was completely worth the struggle.”

-Josh (MA, Christian Leadership)

“I heard about [the grad program] through a professor and was immediately interested. I took a step of faith, packed up my car after graduation and moved to Ohio. I knew I needed a fresh start but I wanted it to be in a place where I was surrounded by godly, Jesus-loving souls.

I was given the opportunity to work on a team, plan events, mentor students, develop stronger communication skills and grow even more in my walk with Christ. The impact team guided me with love and truth and today I consider them some of my closest friends. I enjoyed the environment of creativity, room to make mistakes and the many opportunities I had to show the love of Christ to middle school and high school students.”

-Krista (MA, Christian Leadership)
