Learning Modules

The Antioch Initiative trains pastors using some of the best church planting materials. We partner with established ministries like Vision Nationals (India), and Compassion Connection (Ecuador) that use conferences and bible schools to equip leaders to lead their churches well. Ai has adapted some of the BILD curriculum, which is a church-based, theological education using a “Socratic” method of dialogue to help individuals understand and articulate their beliefs so they can teach others. We also have adapted some of the Porterbrook curriculum, which is a comprehensive 'Missional'church planting curriculum as well as other excellent training materials developed by Ai and the individual trainers giving the church planter the best training available. All Ai trainers are active pastors who have been trained and desire to use their gifts for the kingdom of God.

Some of the Modules below are from BILD and Porterbrook materials, and material developed by The Antioch Initiative
