Our Pastors, Teachers and Church History

God called Pastor John Honn to found Anchor Bay Full Gospel Church in 1993.  The church met mostly in an addition to his home until God called him to build the original portion of the Oxford church building in 1996.  The television ministry also started at that time.  The church name changed to Anchored in Faith Gospel Church in 2001.

Pastor John went on to his reward on April 2nd, 2011. 

Pastor John still preaches to our cable television audience via "Anchored in Faith Classic".

Pastor John Honn's wife Linda Honn is also an accredited minister.  Pastor Linda took over the Senior Pastor position at Anchored in Faith Gospel Church upon Pastor John's death.  She oversees the day to day ministry as well as church business.  She occasionally preaches.  Normally she leaves the responsibility for conducting the Sunday church services to her ministry team.

Assistant Pastor David Rotzinger, as a church member was very close to Pastor John Honn during the early years of Anchored in Faith Gospel Church.  He helped with the youth ministry as well as other aspects of church operations.  In recent times, Pastor David has felt a call and burden to pastor Anchored in Faith Gospel Church.  He has been preparing for this call by completing Kingsway Fellowship International’s Minister in Training program.  Pastor David also holds Lay-Exhorter Credentials from Kingsway and is presently seeking an Assopciate Degree in pastoral ministries thru Canon Christian College.  Pastor David will receive hands on training by assisting Pastor Linda with her pastoral duties.  The goal will be for Pastor David to take over leadership of Anchored In Faith when Pastor Linda retires.  We expect that Pastor David will bring new ideas to make Anchored in Faith more effective in spreading the gospel without straying from the biblical foundation that Pastor John founded Anchored in Faith Gospel Church on.
