Engage the Nations is a three-month summer program that aims to transform lives while investing in God’s work around the world. These summer internship programs are geared toward college students and young adults looking to step onto the front lines and participate in what God is doing in the earth. The Antioch Movement identifies numerous locations abroad to facilitate teams of interns to live on adventure, in community and minister in difficult places. Interns will have the opportunity to engage God’s mission through church-planting initiatives and potential humanitarian outreach efforts.
SERVE:Project is an opportunity to spend 11 months as part of an international church-planting team. Participants get the experience of making disciples, living cross-culturally and working as a team under the leadership of seasoned missionaries. This internship experience helps young people determine if long-term church planting is right for them. If it is, participants often continue by completing the Antioch Church-Planting Course and returning to the field.
For the past 30 years we have served thousands of students in Discipleship schools across the Antioch Movement. We have found the school to be catalytic in establishing Kingdom values and in empowering people to live fully fruitful lives for Jesus no matter their stage of life. The Antioch Discipleship School is offered at most of our U.S. locations and several international locations. Schools generally include an overseas outreach where students apply their learning while reaching the unreached with the good news of Jesus Christ.
The U.S. Leadership Track is a 1–2-year program designed to develop U.S./Western pastors, leaders, and church planters. Combining classroom training, immersive hands-on experience, and 1-on-1 mentor coaching, first-year participants will develop the core leadership skills necessary to lead a team into a clear vision. US church planters who continue into the second year will develop a church planting strategy that is based upon a theological foundation, clarity of calling, and an awareness of their city.
We believe that God is raising up a new generation of leaders to lead and plant a new generation of churches that take this calling, this culture, and multiply it far beyond what we have seen. This will lead to more lives transformed by the Gospel. As a result, a greater wave of laborers for the nations and great impact in our cities.
Every person should have the chance to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus, and our church-planting ministry equips Christians to be a part of this mission. More than a sending agency, we are a family of churches and church planters working together through a shared vision to see the Great Commission fulfilled in our generation.
We train missionaries to make disciples and start new churches around the world through the Antioch Church Planting Course. The course includes personal mentorship and strategic equipping as well as training related to personal, family and team life, and is offered at several of our U.S. locations.
Once on the field, Antioch supports missionaries by connecting them to the greater Antioch family. Missionaries receive regular coaching from experienced workers, support from peers in similar contexts and a broad range of logistical and strategic support. Antioch also hosts a family-focused regional conference to provide refreshment and friendship for both kids and adults to help families thrive while living overseas.
We are always looking to train and send more missionaries who are passionate about church planting. If you are interested in becoming a long-term church planter with the Antioch Movement, we would love to hear from you.
Acts of Mercy is the disaster relief and societal development arm of the Antioch Movement. We mobilize the Church to be on the frontlines in times of crisis - bringing relief and facilitating long-term community development.
Our crisis relief team consists of churches and friends of the Antioch Movement who have been responding to disasters since 2004. We have a history of going to the hardest hit places and bringing hope to seemingly hopeless situations.
As the initial stages of crises end, we are committed to working alongside locals to assess developmental needs and then together rebuild those communicates and transform societies – with the Good News of Jesus as central.
