In Devotionals for the Disciple, the church school curriculum team of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in San Antonio, TX presents timeless lessons that make those images and stories come alive. Presented in a culturally sensitive and socially relevant manner, these lessons for life will help you further develop as a Christian disciple. In each lesson, you will find a cultural connection, a careful review of scripture, and a practical exercise for reinforcement. There are also study questions at the end of each lesson that will further enhance your learning. These devotionals emanate from the church school lessons that have been developed at Antioch since 2006. Inspired by the late senior pastor of Antioch, Rev. Dr. E. Thurman Walker, these lessons have been designed specifically to address the challenges of everyday life. Antiochs current senior pastor, Rev. Dr. Kenneth R. Kemp, and Minister of Counseling, Rev. Joseph C. Huff, have brought together selections from the church school to motivate and inspire all persons seeking to grow closer to Christ. You will be blessed as you read and study these words. Pastor Walker was an anointed leader with a passion for the people of God. He was assistant and co-pastor for a total of six years and then led Antioch for 16 years as senior pastor. The Lord took him home in 2009. Pastor Kemp has been a part of Antioch for 26 years. A preacher who happens to be a medical doctor, he seeks to bring the transformative Word to the people of God on a regular basis. Rev. Huff is a gifted counselor, mentor, and preacher with a heart for the church. He has been a part of Antioch for 20 years.
