Hawai‘i is the only state in the nation that is experiencing faster growth in church attendance than in its population, and yet the number of people who attend evangelical churches in Hawai‘i remains lower than eight percent. Hawai‘i needs more healthy churches led by well-trained, gospel-centered, reproducing leaders.
Antioch School Hawai‘i is addressing this need. We are a partnership of local churches across the islands who have joined together to train and equip church leaders, pastors, and church planters through accredited bachelors/masters degrees in ministry apprenticeships. The Antioch program challenges students to grow not only in knowledge, but also in ministry skills and personal character. All without leaving the islands. All for less than a quarter of the cost of a traditional degree.
We believe this pattern was established by the church of Antioch (Acts 12-13), was modeled for us by Paul and his missionary team (Acts 20), and is the best way for churches to train the next generation of leaders.
If you’re a potential student or pastor-mentor, we’d love to talk more about partnering with your church. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
