NEXT STEPS

ENCOUNTER  //  GROW  //  SERVE  //  SHARE

You were created on purpose, with a purpose, and for a purpose. We believe that wherever you are on life's journey, there's always a next step.

Here at St. Ann we want to make it easy for you to get connected to our Church family and take the next step in a life of passion and purpose with Christ.

STEP ONE: Encounter

St. Ann is a community of people who have encountered Jesus Christ in a powerful and life-changing way. We're also a place for those who haven’t encountered Jesus yet and are curious or have questions. We want to invite every person in Gulf Breeze and Pensacola Beach to a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ, for the first or thousandth time.

OPPORTUNITIES TO ENCOUNTER:

  • Alpha

  • Welcome Retreat

  • Daily Prayer Opportunities

  • And More...


Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.
— POPE BENEDICT XVI

STEP TWO: GROW

Every time Jesus encounters people in a profound way, He invites them to follow Him, to become His disciple. A disciple is one who has made an intentional choice to follow Jesus and grow to live more and more like Him. At St. Ann we encourage every member to join other Christians in building community, sharing faith, and ultimately growing in their discipleship.

OPPORTUNITIES TO GROW:

  • Men’s and Women’s Groups

  • Bible Studies

  • And More…

As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith.
— COLOSSIANS 2:6-7

STEP THREE: SERVE

At St. Ann we believe that a relationship with Jesus moves us out of our seats and into active service. In Matthew 22, Jesus tells us that next to loving God, the second greatest commandment is to love our neighbor as ourselves. Thus we aim to equip and empower every member to serve others in their homes, in the church, and through community outreach.

OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE:

  • At Home

  • In the Church

  • In the Community


The Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.
— MATTHEW 20:28

STEP FOUR: SHARE

At St. Ann we believe that our Church exists not for us, but for the world. We believe that being an "open door church" does not just mean that we welcome others into our doors, but that we Christians are sent out of them as missionary disciples to share what we have received with others. By the witness of our lives and our words we desire to share the Good News of Jesus with the world.

OPPORTUNITIES TO SHARE:

  • Invitation

  • Ministry Leadership

  • Giving

  • And More...

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
— Matthew 28:19-20
