A.I.M. History  

picture of family

During the 1970s, Jim and Jan Erb began an outreach to teenagers in Western Pennsylvania during which the Holy Spirit moved powerfully in salvation, healing and deliverance. Those meetings, which started in a barn, eventually led Jim to become pastor of what is now Living Word Church, a flourishing congregation that has planted several other sister churches throughout Western PA.

As a gifted teacher and respected pastor, Jim Erb has served in full-time ministry for over 40 years. He is also the founder of the Antioch International Ministries (AIM), a growing network of churches and ministries. Jim's desire is for revival that breaks through denominational and racial barriers. To that end, the Lord uses him in areas of prophetic teaching, ministry and broader church oversight.

Jan has served as Jim's lifelong partner in ministry. She is a faithful servant of the Lord and is a real Mother In Israel to the local body. Her wise counsel and acts of kindness are a continual source of blessing to many.
