Dr. John Adolph

Dr. John Adolph accepted his call to preach in May of 1991. After being licensed to preach, 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; he was ordained by his father, Reverend Seymour V. Adolph, Sr. at New Hope Baptist Church in Houston, TX and he married the love of his life, Dorrie Eileen, who joins him as a proud parent of their two children, Sumone and Jonathan.

Pastor Adolph was called to Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Beaumont, Texas in May of 1996 and has led the more than 5,100 member congregation as pastor for over twenty years. In pursuit to further his education, he entered the Houston Graduate School of Theology and graduated with his Doctorate of Ministry Degree in June 1999. His most recent book entitled VICTORY: Ten Fundamental Beliefs that Eradicate Defeat in the life of a Christian is a doctrinal "must read" that is being used across the nation to empower believers.
