outreach

We were made to make a difference.

Our mission at Antioch Christian Church is leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ – here in Eastern Iowa and around the world! We do this by supporting, connecting with, serving, and praying for our local, domestic, and international Outreach Partners

Get Involved

Here at Antioch, we love to serve in the church, in our local communities, and around the world. We serve because we want to share the love of Christ and make a difference in the world around us.

Serve in the Church

Serving others is a great way to grow in our faith, share God’s love, and connect with others here at Antioch.

Go Local

We invite you to pray for and use your time and talent to serve in our local ministries.

Go Global

Serve on a short-term mission trip.

Jesus came and told his disciples, ‘I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:18–20)

Go Local

At Antioch, we love to serve in our local communities. We invite you, your family, and/or your Life Group to pray for and get involved in sharing the hope of Jesus with people in your community.

Below you will find some options for serving in Antioch communities. The volunteer needs are varied. Some are suitable for individuals; some are open to groups to serve. Some are regular and some are occasional. Please take your time to read about ministries in your community and pray about where God might want to leverage your life for his glory.

Go Global

Is it time to step out in faith and leverage your gifts, talents, and experiences by going on a short-term trip?

Antioch offers GO GLOBAL trips to various local, domestic, and international locations for the purpose of supporting our Outreach Partners in the task of leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Some trips are designed for students, families, adults, or senior citizens … and some trips are open for everyone!

Some trips are focused on a particular type of ministry like kids, sports, leader development, urban renewal, Bible translation, or medicine –but every trip focuses on sharing the love of Jesus wherever we go. Are you ready to be a difference-maker?

Outreach Partners

Here at Antioch, we believe in bringing the message of hope in Jesus Christ to people who are here, near, and far. We do this on our campuses through worship, discipleship, NextGen, and multi-site ministries. And we do this in our communities and around the world through our local, domestic, and international Outreach Partners. Please pray for them.
