Christian Education Ministry
Christian Education at Antioch Baptist Church is the continuous promotion of Christ centered teaching, training, learning, and studying, from a Biblical foundation.
After the death of Mrs. Anna B. Davis, wife of Rev. Samuel Davis, in 1954, a scholarship memorial was established in her name. The purpose of this scholarship was to support anyone who was interested in an education for the ministry. A committee was set up to establish and direct this program.
Sometime after the death of Rev. Davis in 1960, Rev. Eugene Williams renewed the committee with James Jackson as president. His committee enlarged the program to support Antioch college bound students.
After Rev. J. Wallace Gaines became Antioch's pastor in 1960, the committee was given the title "Christian Education", worked more closely with the Sunday School, and emphasized the support of education within the church and it's membership. The Cora Belle Haughton Scholarship was established to award scholarships to Antioch students who were going on to college.
In 1993, under the direction of Rev. Michael E. Coleman, the Christian Education Board expanded to provide leadership training to Antioch's membership, and adopted the policy to provide Christ centered training for all members of Antioch Baptist Church.
In 1997, the "4 for 40" Mal Duncan Scholarship for collage students majoring in math or science was established.
