On behalf of the ministry leaders & senior management team at Above & Beyond Fellowship, I want to thank you for joining us on the Ministry field. The very fact that you are reading this says so much about you.
It indicates your desire to serve God, to grow, and to make a difference with your life. We believe every member at ABF is a minister of Jesus Christ and has a special place to serve God in ministry.
We pray this Ministry Connection will not only help you achieve these goals but will also give you the needed guidance to embrace your unique, God-given SHAPE and commit to using it in ministry here at ABF.
