Antioch founders Scott and Amy Whitmore moved to North Minneapolis in 2007. From the day the Whitmore’s moved in, kids in the neighborhood would come over to hang out or help out, spending a lot of time with Scott and Amy.
On Thursdays, Scott and Amy hosted an adult Bible Study in their home. The kids would spend time at the Bible Study, but didn’t find it engaging. This prompted the kids to ask Scott and Amy if they could have their own Bible Study just for kids!
This group became known as Antioch Ministries and received 501(c)(3) status as a non-profit organization in 2008. The weekly group has grown and changed over the years, and Antioch even purchased another house in North Minneapolis to start a second, similar weekly group for neighborhood youth.
