Antioch University (AntiochU), formally Faith

Walk University, was founded in August 2019 in

Chesterfield, VA under the leadership of Founder

and President, Dr. Andrea Leslie. 


In 2022, we changed our name to more accurately

reflect our brand under the Antioch-Global

umbrella, but our mission, vision and core values

remain the same.


AntiochU trains leaders to work in a leadership

capacity in private and/or independent religious institutions or how to start their own.  

AntiochU serves as the official educational and ministerial institution for Antioch Christian Worship Center and the GROW Network.



We offer five major programs of study from Bachelor to Doctorate level as well as several certificate programs.  Most classes are digitally, with a few in-person classes.  AntiochU is focused on equipping students around the world, who are obeying the great commission to go therefore and make disciples of all nations.

At AntiochU we believe education begins with a stated purpose and desire, which turns into opportunities which leads to fulfillment. Our educators are there to help make the journey a little easier. They assist with helping students chart a course that will lead them to their desired end.

Our goal and mission - to make disciples who will make disciples. Therefore, the programs of study and courses that we offer are designed to equip our students with the necessary tools they need in order to carry out the great commission.  AntiochU equips 5-fold ministry community leaders and prepares those called to walk in the office of Apostle, Prophet, and Teacher to be sent out to fulfill their assignment.  

2 Timothy “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”
