David is lead pastor of Anchor Church and founder of Grace and Mercy Ministries. He began to sense a call on his life to advance the kingdom of God by moving the church outside the walls. Thus, Anchor Church is driven by a God-given vision to reach out to the hurting to offer help, hope, and healing. The formation of several ministries has enabled Anchor Church to do so in the name of Jesus.
David is married to Amy, and they have four children together; Caleb, Camleigh, Cooper, and Carys.
In 2015, after working eleven years in the healthcare environment, Cyndi began serving with Grace and Mercy Ministry under the umbrella of Anchor Church. Cyndi aspires to help women walk out freedom in their own lives. Her goal is to see these women make good choices for themselves. What keeps her going is the success stories of the redemption power of God. Cyndi's favorite form of downtime is to be alone for a few days with her Bible and a book that challenges her. However, her two beautiful boys keep her busy. She seeks diligently for God to use her life for His Kingdom by giving hope, love, and healing to hurting women. Cyndi serves as the Administrative Director of Women's Ministries for the Transformation Home and the Transformation Garden.
