Pastor John King came to know Jesus as a result of hearing a speaker preaching about Jesus at a free speech platform at Long Beach State University while attending there in his early 20's. He also attended Pacific Christian College for a time, and served in leadership in Campus Crusade for Christ for 3 years. John has a passion for people to get to know Jesus, His Word, and to experience a victorious and positive walk as a result of their one-on-one relationship with Him.
John and his wife Mary have been blessed in marriage since 1977, have 3 grown children, and 8 wonderful grandchildren.
Rick was introduced to music ministry at an early age, being at, near, and under the piano as his mom played for worship services and as a choir accompanist. He took up the viola at age 10 and reacquainted himself with the piano in high school.
In college, Rick played keyboard with the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship worship team. Following graduation, he played keyboard and piano at Riverlawn Christian Church for 8 years. He and his wife Michelle then transitioned to Southwest Baptist Church for five years before coming to Antioch Christian Church in 2009.
Outside of the church setting, Rick plays with the Delano Orchestra and periodically with the Wichita Grand Opera, and keeps busy with his day job as a medical facility designer and master planner.
Judy's family moved to Wichita in 1987, where she graduated from High School. After becoming a single mother, she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at the age of 18, worked nights, and graduated at the top of her college class, even through the loss of her second oldest son, Anthony. She then married, was blessed with three more children, became a stay-at-home mom, and used her gifts of creativity during her fifteen years of teaching second and third grade Sunday School classes. To help ends meet, she developed and ran a small business for over twelve years while homeschooling her four children into adulthood.
Her family came to Antioch in 2013 and began serving others in many areas. Judy joined Antioch's staff as secretary in 2014 and has continued lovingly serving the church body since then.
