The Boys of Anchor House Ministries

Dream Big” is the theme of this year’s banquet for the boys of Anchor House. This theme captures the future hopes and aspirations for both the boys and their home.

Can you help meet the challenge to Dream Big and bring big success to the boys of Anchor House? You can help by supporting the annual banquet; join us at First Presbyterian Church, Lakeland at 6:00 PM on October 9th as we “Save Lives; One Boy at a Time!” 

The banquet speaker will be Dr. Joe Davis, an international inspirational speaker, scholar and servant to the boys of Anchor House. Dr. Joseph Davis currently serves as executive director of Anchor House Ministries. He is also a professor of theology in the College of Christian Ministries and Religion at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida. Prior to coming to Southeastern University and Anchor House, Dr. Davis served as senior pastor of Crossroads Assembly of God. He planted the church in 1986 and ministered there for nineteen years. During that time, he oversaw a drug rehabilitation program and served as president of the York County Pro-Life Federation. While working as a pastor, Dr. Davis toured overseas setting up free medical clinics, teaching seminars, and holding evangelistic crusades. Dr. Davis holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Philosophy and History from Towson University; a Master of Divinity from Oral Roberts University; and a Ph.D. in Apologetics from Westminster Theological Seminary.

What is it exactly that we do at Anchor House? We give hope to boys that have nowhere else to go. There are approximately 987 children in out-of-home care in Polk, Hardee, and Highlands County. Seventy one percent of those in group homes are teens, like the boys we reach, and our home may be the only structured, welcoming place they know before heading out into the world on their own.

Your loving attendance will:

  • be a living witness to our boys, showing them people love them;
  • be your opportunity to hear and meet Dr. Joe Davis, our dynamic new leader of Anchor House Ministries;
  • offer an opportunity to connect with old friends and supporters of Anchor House Ministries; and
  • experience an enjoyable and inspirational evening.

 Most importantly you will be supporting a new life for young men. Individual tickets are only $25/each; or consider sponsoring a table of 8 for only $200/table!
