Who We Are
We are a new church community in Denver CO. We believe that the gospel of Jesus is the best news for today. Our hope and dream is to be a people who live out the way of Jesus really well in our city. We dream of many others joining us as we seek out the renewal and healing of this city. We believe that God's mission in the world is to heal and restore all of it, and we want to join God in that mission.
Josh & Courtney Lewis
Josh and Courtney Lewis are the Anthem Denver church planters and will lead the vision of this new church. Over the past few years, Josh and Courtney have been dedicated servants within the Anthem family of churches. They have been married for 5 years and have a son named Lennon and a daughter named Violet.
Where We Come From
Josh and Courtney have been a part of the Anthem family of churches in California for almost 7 years now serving and continuing to be deeply involved in the life of this church community. The Lewises have dreamed of doing ministry in an urban city for many years. As they prayed with the leadership of Anthem church, it became clear that they were being called to plant a church in Josh’s home city of Denver Colorado.
Anthem Church Denver is part of a family of churches held closely together through relationship, a shared philosophy of ministry and a deep commitment to the gospel of Jesus.

Where We're Headed
We are praying for a community of people to form in Denver to begin this new church. The dream is that this community will seek God together, regularly live their lives together, and seek the renewal of the city of Denver together. Our dream for the future in Denver is not that just one church would be built up, but that Anthem Church would be a part of a reproducing church movement in Denver and throughout the world.
Our hope is that our plan and strategy would look as much like the plan of the first-century church as possible. We have just started into meeting regularly together to study the Scriptures, to live as a community, to break bread, and to pray.
Our strategy is to grow as disciples of Jesus together, to work to make disciples and to build a church through this kind of effort. This strategy will look like us meeting together regularly in smaller spaces in 2018 and working towards a Sunday gathering launch in the Spring of 2019.
Our Big picture timeline:
August 2018 - Sunday Night Community Meal's Begin
November 2018 - Anthem Church Vision Night
Spring 2019 - Sunday Gathering Launch
What This Means For You
You are invited to come and experience our community in these early days. We are praying that God would add to our number in this season as we meet regularly. The continuation of that prayer is that people would join us and contribute by using their gifts to breathe life into this church.
So yes, please come and check out who we are, but ultimately our dream for you is that you would come and BE the church rather than just being another person who attends a church.
What this means for you is that we are inviting you to come and BE the people of our church here in the city of Denver.
Together we will be a community following Jesus in the city of Denver.
Join us Sunday nights as we gather for a meal and a conversation in the Scriptures.
Join us for a Social as we’re growing together as friends and as a community.
