Breakthrough Church becomes Breakthrough Ministries and Consulting. In 2011, 20 people met in the multi-purpose room at the Molly Pruitt Library determined to support the vision of Pastor Anthony Cobbs in launching a new ministry. After prayer, preparation, and planning, Breakthrough Church launched on January 1, 2012. The Lord blessed the church to minister to people through Sunday worship services and community endeavors, but the real fruit of Breakthrough began to show in its online presence across the country. Hundreds of people downloaded the church’s free mobile app and regularly listened to Pastor Anthony preach the gospel, read his blog, and followed the daily Bible reading plan. The blog was one of the highest read blogs on, the online site for the San Antonio Express News. Over the course of time, Pastor Anthony began connecting with other pastors in the city and across the country. He began to notice a heavy burden upon pastors who needed help, resources, and sometimes, rest. He began working with pastors and ministry leaders, finishing up his doctorate in Leadership, and finding himself called upon to help other ministries in various ways. Pastor Anthony felt the leading of the Lord to transition Breakthrough Church to Breakthrough Ministry Consulting. The ministry no longer holds Sunday morning services but continues to spread the gospel through service to pastors, churches, and ministry leaders that combines all aspects of what Breakthrough is all about. From this new venture, there will be resources for the urban church that will help develop leaders and most importantly, expand the kingdom of God. Though Breakthrough has evolved, our mission has never changed. We continue to help people know Christ, grow in their faith, and show love to the world.
