"Anthem at Living Water is a leadership development program designed to empower and instruct young adults who are passionate about following Jesus and pursuing lives of meaning and ministry. Anthem is a full-time program where students are immersed into three pools of learning: hands-on training – where ministry skills are formed, curricular studies – where ministry understanding is formed and personal discipleship – where the ministering person is formed. One thing that sets Anthem at Living Water apart is its focus on the local church. We have been called to develop young ministry leaders who will be able to serve the Lord faithfully and fruitfully in local church settings around the country and around the world."

To conclude an amazing and life-altering year, the Anthem staff and students take off on the mission trip. We come together and embark on a journey through the United States, or possibly a third-world country, and put our acquired skills and faith into practice. Together as a united family, we spread the Good News about Jesus Christ, fulfilling the Great Commission, which we have all been called.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. Matthew 28:18-20
