Pastor Wendell AbbottPastor Wendell

The church was truly blessed when an Arkansas cowboy, Bro. Wendell Abbott answered God’s call to become our pastor in June of 2010. An exceptional, spirited pastor, he has a passion for “Loving God and Loving People” and “Winning One More for Jesus.” Under his spirit-filled preaching and leadership, our congregation is experiencing remarkable growth in spirit and in numbers. On December 21, 2013, he married Michelle Thomas.
