College Ministry

When college students put their passion into knowing Jesus and making Him known, they can change the world.

Our College Ministry is led by College Pastor Austin Murray, our college staff and other students with a passion for seeing their peers transformed, discipled and empowered.


Lifegroups are at the heart of our church and the best way for you to get involved at Antioch. These student-led small groups meet each week to provide a place for you to walk with other students as you grow in your faith and live out the mission Jesus left for believers.

Although every group has its own style and flow, you can expect each week to start with a time of hanging out followed by worship, studying the Bible and discussing how we can relate it to our lives. You can choose to attend a specific Lifegroup, or we can help you find one.



We come together every week for our College Service where hundreds of college students from campuses across Waco gather to worship, hear teaching and seek God. Our service is on Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. in the Antioch Auditorium during the school year.


We see in the Gospels that discipleship was one of Jesus’ main tools for building His church. He lived life with His disciples, inviting them into His ministry and giving them insight into His relationship with the Father. He tells us to do the same with each other. You aren’t made to figure out how to follow God on your own. Having someone intentionally invest in your life gives you a place to ask questions, get accountability and receive encouragement. Then you can invest in someone else!

If you are interested in learning more about discipleship, please talk to your Lifegroup leader.


As we meet together and experience the love of God, we want to give that love away to people who don’t know Jesus in our city, our nation and the nations of the world. For our College Ministry, that includes:

  • Impact Trips: Our college ministry partners with Engage the Nations to offer college students three-month summer internships where college students work with Antioch long-term missionaries in their base city and share the gospel with unbelievers. In addition to opportunities to intern with Engage the Nations, groups of Lifegroups can work with an Antioch church plant or partner church in the U.S. to share the love of Jesus on two- to three-week long mission trips every summer.


We are passionate about raising up leaders in every sphere and helping students expand their influence. Whether you’re serving with another ministry at Antioch, leading a Lifegroup or involved in events like Awaken, we want you to have the opportunity to grow and develop as a leader.

If you are interested in learning more about leadership development, please talk to your Lifegroup leader.
