The Antioch Foundation exists to establish (which means to strengthen or empower) indigenous pastors in their local context. Most Africans leave their churches and families to go get trained and then return with ideas and practices that are not culturally appropriate to their context, their absence undermines their family relationships, or their best leaders have left to attend other churches while they are away. The last major hurdle is also affordability. The Antioch Foundation solves these problems by using church-based theological training in context to train leaders and members of the churches.

Antioch Foundation partners learn with other pastors in their context while simultaneously training their own people. The churches are protected from false teaching, spiritual wolves, and other issues that occur when shepherds are away.

The foundation also works to supplement this educational process with creating, translating or providing top-notch resources to help build leaders and their members. Most non-profits build buildings and programs AF exists to build people.
