Antioch School


The mission of the Antioch School is to support church-based theological education by providing academic degree programs utilizing in-service leadership development for ministry in church-based contexts.


The vision of the Antioch School is to support the tremendous spontaneous expansion of the Church in the twenty-first century through theological education done in the context of church ministry, which maintains high levels of achievement in character, skills, and knowledge.


Church-planting movements are exploding all around the world in a manner similar to what was known in the Early Church as “the Antioch Tradition.”

Degree Programs

The general objectives of all Antioch School programs are:

• Comprehensive development in character, skills, and knowledge for effective ministry.

• Life development and lifelong learning orientation.

• Recognition of and participation in the centrality of the local church in the plan of God.

• Ability to master biblical content, benefit from significant contributions of scholars, and build strategic models of ministry accordingly.

The general objective of Ministry degrees is to help train those who desire to be part of a leadership and ministry team that is one-minded in ministry vision and philosophy. Out of this team would come those who commit themselves long term to local church leadership or those who desire to train to be part of a missionary team involved in planting or establishing churches in other areas.

The general objective of Theology degrees is to help train those who desire to understand thoroughly the unfolding message of Scripture itself as a guidebook for life and ministry, paying special attention to the implications of that message in one’s personal life, ministry, and culture.
