Matt and Kristen planted Anthem Church in Thousand Oaks, Ca 10 years ago and have enjoyed leading alongside their 5 kids in their hometown. God’s story with Anthem (and the Larson family) has been one of multiplication and we have had the deep joy of partnering with 12 church plants in the 10 years since Anthem was birthed. We look forward to many more in the years to come!


Terry & Linda Fouche

Andy & Jackie Rodgers

The Rodgers have labored in diverse ministry settings over the years ranging from some of the largest, established churches in California to tiny, upstart church plants. What all of the ministries had in common was a commitment to raising up leaders, keeping Jesus central and living in authentic community where people can be known and loved.
