Our Leadership


Scott and Becky Lycan

senior pastors

We first moved to the High Country in 2007, as our restoration location from the mission field. It is a great thrill for us to be senior leadership in the planting of Antioch Community Church of Boone; launching a new expression of the Body of Christ is a privilege and a wonderful challenge. This is our third church plant in North Carolina in the last 25 years, from ‘legacy’ church structures to house church networks. Though an over-simplification; our 30’s were spent in business, our 40’s in church planting, our 50’s in African missions discipleship training & faith-based community development, and now our 60’s launching a missional, relation-based church.

We love to read, hike, exercise, explore and spend time with their great four kids and five amazing grandkids. We are excited to see what our Father is doing in these days, and we want to join in it. Our passion is to equip lovers and followers of Jesus to do the ministry that the Lord has called them into, by the ongoing power of His Spirit. We are expectant of the great things are unfolding for the coming generations.


Hunter and Hailey Rhodes

College pastors

We are Hunter and Hailey Rhodes and we are lovers of Jesus! We went to school at Texas A&M University which is where we also first met each other, began dating, and got married. While we both have believed in Jesus most of our lives, it was in college that we truly gave our lives fully to the Lord and began to experience the freedom, peace, and joy of knowing Him. After experiencing the power of discipleship and dynamic community in college, we were thrilled to come to Boone and help others also encounter God. We believe that God has the High Country on his heart and we are just beginning to see the unfolding of a lasting revival the likes of which this area has never seen!
