Omar Anaya - Associate Pastor

Areas of Responsibility:

  • Lead Young Adults Ministry

  • Lead Local & Global Serving Ministry

  • Assimilation Ministries

  • Secondary Teaching Pastor


“I grew up as a pastor’s kid and was involved in church life from a very early age. Being a pastor’s kid, I was well versed in saying the “right” things and putting up a façade. It wasn’t until my junior year in high school after a break-up that I decided to fully hand over my life to Christ and to make Christianity my faith, as opposed to my parents’ faith. In college I was involved with Campus Crusade and served abroad in the Dominican Republic working with college students. I have a passion for the local church, for teaching and discipleship, for seeing lives be transformed by the power of the gospel and for serving locally as well as globally.”

Omar graduated with a B.S. In Religious Studies from Western Kentucky University and a Master’s of Divinity from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary.

I received my Bachelor’s in Science of Education from Clarion University of Pennsylvania. I went on to teach elementary school in the primary grades including preschool, kindergarten and first grade. All along the way, I felt the Lord pushing me towards ministry. In 2016, He provided me the opportunity to enter His calling as I joined the staff at EFC.
