The short answer is that we believe God led Antioch to start a campus in Oelwein. God brought the idea (starting a campus in Oelwein) to the Antioch elders in a way only the Holy Spirit could. It is our Elders’ desire to follow the God wherever He leads.

In a recent demographic study of the area, “finding a good church” ranked in the top three concerns that were above the national average.

Yes! Antioch is now a multi-site church, meaning we are one church in multiple locations. The leadership leads all campuses, and those who become members are members of Antioch regardless of which campus they attend.

All campuses of Antioch share the same mission: Leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

All campuses share the same core values:

  • The Bible is Relevant to Your Life.
  • Life Change Happens Best in Relationships.
  • Partnerships are Powerful.
  • You are Made to Make a Difference.

Celebration Worship Services will be on Sundays at 10:00am beginning January 5!

While the buildings look different, the feel of the services is the same: inspirational worship, solid biblical teaching, an inviting atmosphere (including coffee and donuts!), and a dynamic children’s ministry.

The messages are shown via video projection – the same messages, the same week.

Worship music is live, led by Antioch Oelwein’s worship team.

Children’s ministry: workers for all levels of classes, from birth to 5th grade.

Hospitality: preparing coffee and donuts, preparing for communion, and providing an enjoyable and inviting atmosphere.

Ushers: passing communion and offering trays during the service, meeting and greeting people in the worship center prior to the service

Safety: (there is a special process for those interested) provide assistance to those who need it in just about whatever way they need, be stationed in various parts of the building during services.

Music: leading worship through music, whether vocal or instrumental (or both!)

Technical Arts: Sound and lights for the worship service

Attenders: come and join the crowd, helping boost the attendance and helping newcomers feel welcome.

Each area will require training, and, in some cases, a background check.
