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.

The 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.

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.
