Antioch Churches in Waltham leadership

Meet Our Leadership Team

Our Staff:

Sean Richmond - Lead Pastor

Sean is the Lead Pastor at Antioch Waltham and one of the overseers for Antioch New England ("ANE").  He earned his Masters degree from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary.  Sean and his wife Laura have five children, two of whom are currently in college.

Sean and Laura, along with an initial church plant team, started the first Antioch church in the Greater Boston area, pioneering domestic church planting for the Antioch International Movement of Churches.

Laura also co-founded Grace Preparatory Academy, a university-model school, in Newton, Massachusetts.  Sean is passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus, loving others, and disciplining people into their God-given destiny.  Sean and Laura also enjoy almost any outdoor activity, especially if it can be done as a family.

John Prickett - Director of Ministry

John graduated from Gordon College in 2006 and earned his M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 2010.  In 2008, John got involved with Antioch Greater Boston while helping start our church plant on the North Shore called The Harbor.

John and his wife Jessie are passionate about helping others know God intimately and they both take great joy in seeing young adults (20s & 30s) thrive in their post-college years.  In John’s world there are no strangers, only friends he hasn’t met yet - lots of them.  If you want to get to know John better, just ask him to play basketball, drink coffee, go surfing, or do just about anything else that is related to being at the beach.

Brendon Hollingsworth - Associate Pastor

The slight twang in Brendon’s accent betrays his Oklahoma upbringing. But all it took was a smile from a beautiful Boston College hockey player from Alaska to make Boston his (now their) home and Antioch Greater Boston his people.

Brendon is passionate about seeing marriages and families thrive as they live radically for Jesus and his Kingdom throughout each season of life.  With the conviction that Jesus restores and redeems, Brendon and his wife, Sarah Joy, are continually growing and learning about what it means to humbly pursue justice and reconciliation. This journey to live lives of service and compassion has led them to multiple continents around the world.  Brendon and Sarah Joy are parents to 3 amazing kiddos.

Bri Livingood - Children's Ministry Coordinator

Bri and her family originate from Tucson, Arizona. She attended Simmons College for her undergrad work and attended ACC Brighton during that time. She was a part of the first Antioch Discipleship School ("ADS") class in 2004 and spent time in North Africa and Germany with Antioch teams in 2005. In Arizona, Bri worked at a small school as the Middle School Social Studies teacher and then became the Assistant Director after she completed her M. Ed. in leadership and public policy at the University of Arizona.

Bri is passionate about quality community and educational programs for kiddos. Her desire is to help raise up generations that are full of life and love as God created through grace and mercy in Jesus.

John Clark - Director of Business Operations

John graduated from Florida International University in 1999 with a BBA in Business Administration, and in 2006 with a J.D. from New England School of Law, passing the Massachusetts bar exam that same year. He practiced law for approximately 4 years before feeling the Lord calling him to full time ministry with Antioch Community Church.

John believes that Godly business practices are essential, especially for a church.  He is passionate about coaching people and seeing their lives transformed as they discover their God-given destiny.

John is married to Lia and they live in Waltham with their four children.

Alaine Norcross - Second Year Resident

Alaine is a true Bostonian, born and raised in the Boston area. With a background in management, customer service and coaching, Alaine is currently in her second year on staff as a resident, helping to lead and strengthen our young adult (20’s and 30’s) ministry.

She has a passion for seeing lives transformed in the presence of Jesus. “As someone who knows a troubled past, I understand the Lord’s grace, forgiveness, compassion and comfort. I know our need to be known and the belonging we experience when we understand who He is and what He’s done for us.” She believes intimacy with Jesus is key to lasting change.
