"A benefit of the Antioch Project is the opportunity to see situations that come up in ministry from God's angle and learn how to respond to these in an appropriate and pleasing way to the Lord. Having the opportunity to do this outside of real life, with time to think and with the help of those wiser than me is invaluable to saving trouble, hardship, and correction from the Lord in the future."
Glenda, Texas Campus
"Something I have experienced in Antioch is that it gives me effective tools that I can use in ministry and in life. This is not about head knowledge but rather a change in perspective and values in my heart."
Jodi, Southern California Campus
"I have been able to take what I am learning and apply it to my family, work, and ministry. It has been a huge help!"
Thad, Texas Campus
"It is motivating and fulfilling to be learning and growing with a group of like minded people with whom we can partner to make a difference in the kingdom!"
Carol, Texas Campus
Building a Foundation:
"The Antioch Project has provided for me a foundation for ministry. I am learning the background and fundamental underpinnings of a life shaping ministry. In this project, we have been granted access to the strategy behind Hope Church. We are hearing directly from Pastor Harold how things have been developed. The biggest impact of this access has been the introduction into what ultimately changes behavior and beliefs. This practically plays out immediately as I am able to apply this knowledge to my areas of ministry we are serving in."
Randall, Texas Campus
"One of my favorite things about the Antioch Project is the consistent 1x1 time with AP program staff. I leave every meeting with helpful advice and tools to use in the specific situations I'm dealing with in my personal life and ministry."
Bruce, Southern California Campus
Preparing For The Future:
"Everything I'm learning is so valuable in how I relate to people, assess situations and serve or lead teams. If it has been this helpful so far, I know I want to keep pushing forward and get as much out of the program as possible. If we end up going out somewhere to start a new church or ministry, Lord willing, the training we received will help us build something that lasts and avoid needless mistakes."
Hannah, Texas Campus
"Antioch is extremely relevant and practical to my daily life, so I'm motivated to continue in the program despite the high level of commitment it requires. As a stay at home of 3 children I can so clearly see the disconnect between just knowing biblical truth and actually living it. Through my involvement in Antioch, I have found great motivation and encouragement in my role as a wife and mother as well as my role as a leader in the ministry at church."
Samantha, Southern California Campus
"I am motivated to continue because of growth I've seen in myself and the other students in the Antioch Project. I've been stretched and challenged but have really been changed by God through it!"
Cody, Southern California Campus
Structure and Accountability:
"I'm motivated to continue to be challenged and grow in wisdom. Antioch provides accountability and encouragement to stay teachable and develop in knowledge and character."
Christian, Texas Campus
"I see the benefit the training has been to my wife, my family and my church. As I gain clarity in key areas in life, my ability to function as a husband, father and ministry partner grows."
Josh, Texas Campus
Learning How to Help Others Grow:
"Having spent twenty-two months in overseas missions, I discovered that there was a lot I needed to learn about how to walk with God, how to help others walk with God, and how to plant healthy, reproducing ministries and churches. What I'm learning while being apart of Antioch has been extremely practical to serving in ministry and walking with God."
