Rev. Dr. John Adolph

Senior Pastor

Pastor of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, Beaumount, TX

Dr. John Adolph was born April 9, 1966, in Houston, Texas to the late Seymour V., Sr. and
Barbara Jean Jackson Adolph. He attended public schools in Houston including East Houston
Elementary School, Kirby Middle School, and M. B. Smiley Senior High School. He went on to
further his academic pursuits at Texas Southern University on full scholarship in 1984 and
received a BBA Degree in December 1989.

Dr. Adolph accepted his call to preach and do the work of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in
May of 1991. After being licensed to preach, he was compelled by the Holy Spirit to give his
soul to the study of God's Word, so he entered the Interdenominational Theological Center,
Morehouse School of Religion in Atlanta, Georgia where he would earn his Masters of Divinity
Degree with honors. While in Atlanta two amazing things took place that would change his life
forever. First, he was ordained by his earthly father and then Pastor, the Reverend Seymour V.
Adolph, Sr. at New Hope Baptist Church, Houston, TX in May 1994. And secondly, he met
and married the love of his life, Dorrie Eileen and they are the proud parents of two
children, Sumone and Jonathan.

Upon graduation from Morehouse School of Religion, Pastor Adolph was called to become the
Under Shepherd of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Beaumont, Texas. He accepted this
Pastoral call in May of 1996 and has continued to lead the flock for over twenty years. In pursuit
to further his education and his desire to learn more about the teachings of Jesus Christ, he
entered the Houston Graduate School of Theology and graduated with his Doctorate of Ministry
Degree in June 1999.

Pastor Adolph arrived in the Beaumont area with a vision to build the Kingdom of God on earth.
With a sincere desire to reach the lost and disciple the saved in his heart, the congregation of 57
members started to grow and is today a community of faith that numbers over 5,100 in weekly
worship services each week. This growth that was produced by the Holy Spirit caused him to
build. With God leading the way, Dr. Adolph was blessed to acquire well over 75 acres of land
and moved Antioch from its location on Washington Blvd. to 3920 W Cardinal Dr. in 2011.

The new location is a communal citadel of hope that consists of a 1500-seat worship center, an
administration complex, a housing development that has constructed 60 new homes and added 4
new streets to the city's infrastructure, along with two 148 unit townhome projects, Grace Lakes
and the Place of Grace for persons 55 years of age and older. All of these multi-million dollar
communal kingdom developments were accomplished through the church CDC, Jehovah Jireh
Village of which he serves as the President.

Pastor Adolph is well known for his teaching and preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His
national and international ministry includes a weekly broadcast on The NOW Network, Live
Stream global multimedia network, a weekly prayer call that hosts well over 10,000 people every
Wednesday morning and has published numerous articles and books.

Most importantly, Dr. Adolph is a saved, born-again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is
committed to doing all that he can, while he can, for the Lord who saved, healed, and called him.
