“The Antioch Discipleship School was transformational in my life and a point from which all other significant decisions flowed. During my time in the program, I got to press into Jesus with an intimacy I have never known before, and I became more aware of the Holy Spirit’s presence in my life than I ever have been. I thank God for this experience because it forever changed my life for the better, and I know my eternity will look different because of the ways I learned to press into Jesus through the program. I cannot recommend this enough to anyone who longs to meet Jesus in their current situation and for anyone who desires to live out God’s call for their life. I could never praise God enough for what he did in my heart through the Discipleship School, and the relationships I made there will last a lifetime.” - Jenny Carmichael, class of 2018
"When I began the Discipleship School, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was hungry for more of God and had just finished college and knew that the Lord was calling me to D-School. I soon found that D-School is simple spending time reading through the Bible, engaging in powerful teachings and practically living out the kingdom of God. Through the school, the Lord refined me and equipped me in ways I didn't expect to make an impact in the world. He solidified my calling to the nations but also gave me practical tools to build his church even when stateside. On top of that, I formed deep relationships with my classmates as we truly became a family!" - Gabe Hilliard, class of 2018
"Before doing the discipleship school, I knew God as my provider, as my refuge, and as my peace. I didn't know He could be my closest friend or a kind and gentle Father. There were so many pieces of God's character that I was missing and I didn't even realize! God used this year to strip away what I thought I knew about Him, and laid an essential foundation of truth. It is such a joy to walk with Him now that I am beginning to understand who He actually is and who I am in relationship to Him! My life has been completely transformed." - Jen Olano, class of 2015
"I did the discipleship school to become better equipped spiritually. The teachings, books, and accountability served as a catalyst for the transformation that inevitably comes when you pursue Christ in all areas of your life. The guidance provided this year in the school was the pathway to a deeper relationship with God. I have experienced intimacy with God that has left me changed forever; no matter what storms may come in life, I now know that He is my foundation." - Kevin Olano, class of 2015
"The Discipleship School taught me how to live a life of discipline, one that is boundless and full. I was pressed with time and responsibilities, but through that I experienced the strength and presence of Jesus in my life more than ever before." - TJ Sanford, class of 2015
