Jim and (wife) Kim, have served as Sr. pastors of Abundant Life Tabernacle since 1977.In 2002 the church was blessed to move to their present 34-acre property that is bounded by two state highways and one county road. Today there are six buildings making up their vibrant campus. Abundant Life Tabernacle is a “regional” church, drawing worshippers from the Miami Valley and the tri-state region. Jim led the founding of Germantown Christian Schools in 1980, and is co-founder of Abundant Life Missions International: a mission organized and serving in Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Today the mission oversees over 75 churches, one Christian School for the homeless, and one orphanage.

Kim was born into a pastor’s home and attended her first revival at the age of two weeks old.
She gave her life to Christ at the age of four, and at ten years old she started children’s church
ministry at her father’s church. Her love for the Lord was established early and has served to
keep her focused and unstoppable.
Kimberly was nineteen when she married, and she and Jim had accepted the pastorate of
Abundant Life two weeks earlier. Kim has taught in ALT’s Christian School, served as
choir director, taught Sunday school, and led the women’s ministry at the church. Her deep
commitment to women’s ministry has led her to speak and direct women’s conferences across
the Midwest and throughout Central America.
Jim and Kim have two lovely daughters, two sons-in-law, and now two wonderful grandsons.
