WHAT I LOVE ABOUT ABUNDANT LIFE
Abundant Life has been our church home for half our lives. It's not just a church, it's family. We do life with these people, both in the good times and in the hard ones. We love being part of a church that impacts our community and around the world.
I love being outdoors with mountains and water. It would like to see the Grand Canyon or a hike through Alaska.
Dave literally eats chocolate chip cookies everyday.
