Whether at church, school, business or home, you are leading people and projects every day. You’re leading in a culture that is constantly changing and redefining itself.

This year we have the opportunity to partner with Mercer Creek Church in Ellensburg as they host this year’s Global Leadership Summit.
You can sign up online today through June 27th for a reduced rate of $99 using the code SPC17, and then join us in Ellensburg to be stretched and challenged by word-class speakers and practical training.

There is a fourfold challenge that comes with our Gift To The World
1. Love God
It starts with Jesus. It ends with Jesus. This is the holistic approach God had in mind for Christmas. It’s a season where we are called to put down our burdens and lift a song up to our God. It’s a season where love wins, peace reigns, and a king is celebrated with each breath. It’s the party of the year. Enter this season with an overwhelming passion to worship Jesus to the fullest.
2. Spend Less
Quick question for you: What was the one gift you remember getting for Christmas last year? Next question: What about the fourth or fifth gift? Do you remember that one? Spending less isn’t a call to stop giving gifts; it’s a call to stop spending money on gifts that may not be remembered in less than a year. America spends around $600 billion dollars during the Christmas season, and much of that goes right onto a credit card. By spending wisely on gifts we free ourselves from the anxiety associated with debt so we can take in the season with a full heart.
3. Give More
We know what you’re thinking. “Wait, didn’t they just say I should spend less, and yet here they are telling me to give more? What gives?” The most powerful, memorable gift you can give to someone else is yourself. No one modeled this more than Jesus. So what does this look like for you? Tickets to a ball game or the theater? A movie night? The main point is simple: When it comes to spending time with those you love, it’s all about quality, not quantity.
4. Love All
It all boils down to love. Love from a savior. Love to a neighbor in need. By spending just a little less on gifts we free up our resources to love as Jesus loves by giving to those who really need help. This is the conspiracy three churches began a few years ago, and it has since grown into an international movement where thousands of churches have raised millions of dollars to love others in life-changing ways. It’s not that there’s something wrong with the shopping mall—it’s that the better story is about loving all.
Pray and ask how you are to participate in Gift To The World this year. We are changing lives and eternities around the world every year with this gift. And as we give for the life change of others, we are changing too!
On Thursday, October 27th we launch the Buddies program for the 2016-2017 school year at our adopted school Robertson Elementary. We will be hanging out with a group of 40 kids eating snack, practicing math and reading skills, helping with homework, playing games and most importantly building relationships. We couldn't do any of this without your prayers and giving. Please continue to pray for our Buddies team as they are preparing for this next school year and for the kids they they will serve!
If you are interested in joining our Buddies team just fill out the form below and we will be in touch with you.

Hello! I, Zack Chamberlain, would like to welcome you to the AHSI application! This will be fun! I am excited to see your application with YOUR name on it!
Please read everything!
The internship starts September 6th and ends May 31st Applications are due by August 19th. Applications will not be accepted after this date.
There will be a Parent and Student meeting before Anthem on August 10th from 6pm-7pm. Please come to this meeting with your parent or guardian. The Parent and Student Meeting is required for interns to be accepted.
Do you want to go further in your relationship with Jesus and learn how to love, lead, and live the way Jesus did and does? Do you have a desire to see your family, friends, and this city come to know Jesus? If so, this internship is for you.
You have the opportunity to leave this internship with a deeper relationship with Jesus and a greater understanding of how to lead people, love people, and live in this amazing life like Jesus. But this will only happen if you dig in and commit.
This internship will not make you a leader. You already are a leader. This internship will simply help you improve your leadership skills.
1 Please read and submit this form online and
2 Submit a 90 second video of "why you want to be an intern." Get creative!
What is the AHSI?
The AHSI is for high school students who want to love, lead, and live like Jesus and who want their family, friends, and city to know Jesus.
If you want to go deeper in your relationship with Jesus and learn more about how to love, lead, and live like Jesus, the AHSI would be a great fit for you.
The AHSI is a 9 month commitment that will include ministry tracks, Bible study, life groups, opportunities to lead and serve at Anthem High School on Wednesday nights and Yakima Foursquare Church on Sunday mornings, serving students of Robertson elementary, personal development, and leadership development.
All interns will both lead in various forms at and attend Anthem High School on Wednesday nights. All interns will also lead at and attend Yakima Foursquare church Sunday mornings.
In October, one month after the internship starts, the Buddies program at Robertson Elementary will begin. At this program, the interns and other leaders will spend time with elementary kids helping them with homework and playing with them during free time. The start date for Buddies is not certain yet.
There will also be a few other events for the interns throughout the year. A calendar will be available at the parent and student meeting.
What will I learn?
You will learn how to love, lead, and live like Jesus, and a lot of other things about living life, loving people, and leading. You will have the opportunity to take part in Bible study, learning about a certain ministry in the church and developing your skills in that ministry, there will be a leadership development speaker every month, and much more.
Each three months will have a theme that we will focus on.
We will focus on loving like Jesus during September-November, leading like Jesus during December-February, living like Jesus during March-May.
What will I do?
- Weekly schedule:
- Tuesday 3pm-5pm
- Wednesday 4pm-9pm
- Thursday 3pm-5pm
- Sunday 8am-12pm
The weekly schedule will be explained at the parent and student meeting.
Feel free to contact me with any questions!
What is expected of me?
Because there will be people depending on you, if these expectations are not met, you will be released from the internship.
• Be in relationship with Jesus. This doesn't mean that you need to be perfect, this means that you are pursuing Jesus with your life.
• Maintain consistent Bible devotion.
We will talk about what we get out of Bible devotions over the week every Wednesday to keep each other accountable.
• Set an example. (At Anthem, Sunday mornings, at school, in your home, around your friends. Remember, you are a leader already. You have the power to set an example right now.)
• Lift each other up and encourage each other.
• Be present (phones will not be allowed during "focused" internship times).
• Be punctual at all times.
• Be respectful and approachable to leadership and authority.
• Keep good standing in school.
• Remember, your lifestyle represents this internship, the Church, and Jesus Christ.
