On October 26 and 27, North Central University hosts the 9th annual Antioch Conference, a gathering of seasoned Assemblies of God World Mission (AGWM) leaders, professors, local believers, and students, who long to see Jesus exalted in every people group.
Chapels, seminars, question panels, prayer times, and other conference events are centered around one crucial question: How can we passionately pursue obedience to Christ’s Great Commission?
As a partnership between AGWM and NCU, The Antioch Initiative exists to empower students from all majors to disciple the unreached—across the street and around the world.
Since its founding, The Antioch Initiative has shared the same passion as that of the ancient church in Antioch, where the first missionaries were sent out.
The Antioch Initiative (originally named Antioch Center) first began in 2008 under the direction of Diane Campbell, a veteran minister in Cambodia. Then in 2015, Diane passed the baton to Nick and Marcae Robertson, who had served in India for nearly 20 years.
The Antioch Society and the Antioch Church Planting Training team are the two main expressions of The Antioch Initiative at NCU:
- The Society is a campus-wide student organization for all majors which is committed to prayer, cross-cultural outreach, giving, and training.
- The Church Planting Training team gives select students an opportunity to be a part of a church planting team serving the unreached right in our community.
The Antioch Conference events are posted on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (@antioch2414). Guests will have a chance to hear key speakers in chapel, attend a mobilization seminar and panel discussion, and visit a UPG prayer exhibit.
On Friday afternoon, there will be free camel rides on campus for North Central students, and the conference concludes on Friday evening with a rally featuring Dick Brogden.
