Discipleship School

Antioch Discipleship School (ADS)

Antioch Discipleship School is a life-changing experience for people of any age, background, vocation, or season of life. It is an eight-month night school that runs from September to April – with a week-long mission trip over spring break – that helps people become reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ, bringing God’s Kingdom to Fort Worth and beyond.

Antioch Discipleship School provides our students the opportunity to be transformed through encounters with Jesus, experience the discipleship process, and learn to live entirely on mission in our city, nation, and the nations of the earth. Since 2001, hundreds of students have graduated from Discipleship School and we have found the school to be catalytic in establishing Kingdom values and in empowering people to live fruitful lives for Jesus. We encourage everyone to enroll in Discipleship School at some point in their journey at Antioch.

In this intensive year, through a combination of prayer, worship, and teaching in a hands-on learning environment, you will not only be hearers of the Word but doers. We look forward to praying with you about your journey to the Antioch Discipleship School!


Applications for the 2021-2022 school year are open now! The deadline to apply is June 1, 2021

If you want accountability for creating spiritual life-giving habits and help with practical ways to stay engaged with Jesus that result in lifelong “up and to the right” movement, ADS is the place for you!

ADS is a great opportunity to build the spiritual disciplines that open you eyes to what God is doing in and around your life. It’s so refreshing to be with a group of disciples that are just as hungry as you to know Jesus more personally. Come with a soft heart and a hungry spirit; God will teach you something new.

Jump in and join! ADS has been one of the most transformational groups I’ve been part of. It will challenge you to grow deeper in your walk with God and also build great community
