David Newman

Lead Pastor/Elder


David is the lead pastor of Antioch and you will often find him spending time with his amazing wife Ashli, wrestling with his four boys or talking about Jesus over a cup of dark roast with his friends.  It is often said that he has coached every kid in Lebanon in some sport.  He loves the YMCA and has a life-long passion to lift the "C" in this movement.  He is grateful, beyond words, to spend his life preaching God's Word, hanging out with people, and seeing lives changed all around him!

David grew up within walking distance of Lambeau field, pastored a church near Boston, Massachusetts, and went to college at Auburn University. Therefore, he will passionately argue that Aaron Rodgers is the greatest quarterback to ever play the game, the Red Sox will win the world series, and the Auburn Tigers should play for the National Championship.
