What's New

Hello, brethren & partners in the Antioch Initiative. God continues to bless us with opportunities to increase the Antioch Initiative's outreach in planting the Lord's church in our great nation. Several weeks ago I called sister Betty Choate with the Voice of Truth International Magazine to ask about advertising for an evangelist to partner with us at the second church plant in Tunkhannock, PA. After telling her about the Antioch Initiative, she offered to put a article in the magazine's January 2017 edition as well as a front page picture that reflects the vision of this work. Yet, that was only the beginning of doors opening and awareness of good brethren being raised. Betty knows many brethren around the brotherhood. She mentioned the Antioch Initiative to Dennis Jones, the President of Heritage University in Florence & Decatur ,AL. Brother  Jones, in turn,  mentioned the this church planting work to some brethren in Nashville, TN at the Hermitage congregation that serve as the trustees for a mission fund left by an extremely evangelistic brother at his death. Brother Dennis also gave our contact information to a recently graduated student from Heritage. We are in contact with this potential evangelist for the new church plant in Tunkhannock, PA. This looks like a great opportunity for both parties, God willing. One of the Trustees, Grant Carruth, contacted me to discuss the Antioch Initiative and a meeting was arranged for Don Myers, Dr. Andrew Bowens (a deacon of Elmore with vast mission experience), Dr.…

Who Am I?

Who Am I

by Don Myers

I deliver your paper, pick up your trash, or have taken you on a date.
I am your neighbor, your co-worker or even your mate.
I am white, black or any color you may have seen.
I am young, old or somewhere in between.
I am from the South, the North or from the Mid-West.
I am a Republican, Democrat or could really care less.
I am a good guy, bad guy or morally unconcerned
Who is on the broad road and destined to be burned.
I am the good ground, but how will you ever know?
Jesus said it was your mission the saving seed to sow.
Devoured by the roaring lion who stalks the earth all time,
So to leave me untold is the highest of spiritual crime.
My days are limited on the earth, which is my fleshly home.
My opportunity to get right with God is going and almost gone.

You’ve said, "If he was interested, he’d get himself in church,"
But you see the enslavement of sin has bound me in its lurch.
When you see me, imagine me your dear and loving child
Who you refuse to leave in darkness and in ungodly wild.
So leave no stone unturned to deliver me from my sin.
Never give up on me for eternity never ends.
I am capable of loving Jesus as much as you ever did,
If I could only get out of this evil, worldly skid.
I could be as spiritually lush as the greenest of fescue,
So help me, tell me and come to my rescue.
You risk me cursing you, hating you and pushing you far away,
Yet your Savior was treated in exactly the same way.
So, come on, reach out and speak to me today!
Your Jesus went up to Calvary for my sins to pay.

The Antioch Initiative

SiteLogoAIThe Antioch Initiative Team (including an expanding number of passionate and knowledgeable brethren) is being coordinated by the elders of Elmore Church of Christ in Elmore, Alabama. We are beseeching God to use us in the establishment of a germinal congregation in each of four counties of Northeastern Pennsylvania—namely, Bradford, Susquehanna, Wyoming and Sullivan. (Germinal congregations will plant other congregations in the future, which will, in turn, plant other congregations.) These counties represent 142,406 souls—none of which claim adherence to membership in the Lord’s church. You are being invited today to become a partner in The Antioch Initiative with your prayers, input, service and funding. The essential vision being pursued through The Antioch Initiative is a plan which involves the following elements.
