About Anchor Ministerial

Anchor Ministerial Fellowship is a non-profit religious corporation founded in 1970 to provide license and ordination credentials to qualified ministers.

Our vibrant, growing community of ministers are reaching for their full potential, and Anchor wants to help you do the same.

Our Heart

Why We Exist

We are more than a credentialing body. We exist to help people fulfill their ministerial calling through dynamic teaching and genuine fellowship. Building authentic relationships is at the heart of all we do, enabling our members to learn, grow and develop on their ministerial journey.

Why We Do What We Do

Sustainable ministries thrive in community. We act as a place of belonging and mutual cooperation for the benefit of every minister who makes up our membership. Sharing ideas, challenges, resources and encouragement strengthens our members and propels their ministries forward.

Where We Are Going
