Larry and Sarah Bills (members of University congregation in Montgomery, AL and former choral director at Faulkner University) are the newest members of the Antioch Initiative.
Brother Bills is the former President of Crowley’s Ridge College in Paragould, AR and has known numbers of the Presidents of Ohio Valley University in Parkersburg, WV over the past numbers of years. Both of those brotherhood colleges have Bible departments training men as preachers of the gospel. Brother Bills will exploit his contacts at those places seeking to raise awareness of the Antioch Initiative’s church planting work in Pennsylvania. He commented, “I have noticed over the years that there are concentrations of congregations in the regions where Christian colleges exist.” Further, he commented, "The Bible students of Ohio Valley University are culturally acclimated to the Northeast and would, logically, be most useful in Northeastern church-planting."
Brother Bills worked at Northeastern Christian Junior College in Villanova, PA for fifteen (15) years and is very familiar with the regions where we are working in PA. He and his wife, Sarah, have been consistent financial supporters of this work and have been long-time friends and former college-mates of Bill Garrett (a strong member of the Antioch Initiative’s Core Leadership) of Lewistown, PA.
God is on mission. Let us join Him!
