Andrew & Heather Znachko

Andrew, Heather, Rose and Smith moved to Indianapolis in May 2016 to start Antioch Indianapolis.  Andrew, an Indianapolis native, and Heather, an Abilene, Texas native, met while attending Baylor University where they were both part of the college ministry at Antioch Waco.  The Znachkos love having fun and are passionate about people knowing the love and power of Jesus in every aspect of life.

Andrew is on staff as our Lead Pastor and Heather (along with pastoring alongside Andrew) is a mother of two. 



Samuel & Sarah Best

Samuel and Sarah met in 2009 at the Antioch in College Station, Texas. There they both started a journey of knowing Jesus and His Church in ways they had never imagined. After attending Antioch College Station's Discipleship School in 2013-2014, Samuel and Sarah agreed to help lead the students of the 2014-2015 school. While serving in this way, they got to know Andrew and Heather Znachko (the new leaders of the school). In April 2015, the Znachkos invited Samuel and Sarah to move to Indianapolis and help plant an Antioch Church there. While praying and processing through this decision, they felt God leading them to join with what He was doing in Indianapolis. They said "yes" and now call Indianapolis home, and look forward to doing so for years to come! 

Samuel is on staff as our Associate Pastor and Sarah has owned her own photography business since 2009. She is also a new mother (Jude Lynn Best - shown in the picture, having a blast, as usual). Samuel and Sarah also lead our Antioch Kids Ministry (our Sunday morning children's ministry).




Steve & Linda

Steve and Linda were high school sweethearts in the Chicago area and after they married they moved to Indy.  They have been married for 35 years and have 4 grown children.  Steve and Linda LOVE having their grandchildren in Indy! Steve has his own sales and marketing business, he enjoys playing squash and serves as a pastor to Mission to Ukraine where he travels several times a year.  Linda is the author of a new book, named after her ministry, He Knows Your Name.  They love the seasons and plan to never leave Indiana! 


Chad & Charis

Chad and Charis have been in the Indianapolis area since 2009, and have four children. Chad is the General Manager for his family's water treatment business. Charis is a stay at home mom and now privileged to lead the worship team for Antioch Indy. While attending Baylor University in college, Chad and Charis both were involved in Antioch Waco and fell more in love with Jesus and the church because of it. Chad, an Indianapolis native, would visit home over the holidays and hang out with this kid he mentored, Andrew Znachko, and rave about what God was doing in his heart because of Antioch. After getting married and moving home, they prayed for an Antioch church plant for years, and found temporary church homes all over the city, gleaning wisdom and relationships with all sort of people. When Andrew and Heather Znachko announced an Antioch Indy church plant, they felt like God was answering years of prayers.
