Our Story

How it all started...

On October 9th, 2011, Abundant Heart Church had its first Sunday morning service.  The Lord revealed to me in the Spring of 2011 that I was not to travel anymore, actually, He told me to, "Stay home."  After some resistance on my end I finally gave in and said, "OK, Lord, what do You want me to do?"  He revealed to me that Cricket and I were to pastor a new work in Granite Shoals.  He gave me the Book of Acts chapters 1-4 to study.  After several months of studying these chapters, I received revelation on His design for the church which included first of all, Fellowship.  Christians would gather together, build relationships with each other.  Secondly, they broke bread together like family and finally, they shared the Word of God together.
Cricket and I took this revelation and developed AHC according to this design.  On Sunday morning October 9th of 2011 with just the two of us we had church.  The following Sunday we doubled with a continued growth since.  In December of 2012 the Lord spoke a single word to me, "Building."  Nothing else was heard or done about a building until March of 2013 when the Lord instructed me to call Pastor Harold Connoway about leasing his building on 1431.  We negotiated a month to month lease for the property. Our first service was the Sunday after Easter; April 7th.
In 2015 with a loan from our district we purchased the property.  Over the last few years we have finished renovating the inside and outside of the main building and paint on the Youth Building to give them a more modern place for all believers.
In October of 2018 with a $1000 seed planted my phone rang and the voice on the other end said, "The Lord has instructed me to pay off the note on the church."  Abundant Heart Church is a debt free ministry showing people through the Truth of the Word of God there is a better way to live.
Abiding in God,  Honoring His Word,  Changing Lives.
Reaching Up, Reaching In, Reaching Out.

Where we are headed...

One of the questions I hear most is, "What is my purpose?" "Why am I here on this planet?"  We at AHC believe we are to not only help you find the answer to that question, but help you develop and live in your purpose.
