Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Life In Abundance exists to mobilize the local church to restore health, renew hope and inspire lasting transformation for the world's most vulnerable children and families.

We cultivate local leadership to identify their community's greatest needs. Then we train, equip and walk with local leadership to implement integrated, long-term solutions that address the root causes of poverty.

We have an integrated approach which addresses the whole person. Our programs are designed to address the health, economic, education and social engagement of a person within a community.

Poverty is a complex issue that requires integrated solutions. It cannot be solved simply. LIA is committed to help communities identify the root causes of poverty in their context and equip them to address them in a sustainable way without creating dependency.

We firmly believe that by empowering the communities to participate in the solution, the individuals begin to recognize their God-given dignity and self-worth.

We work in 14 countries in Africa and the Caribbean. We are working to deepen our impact in these countries we are currently serving.

We have a training center in Kenya and Jamaica to equip pastors and community leaders who would like to be equipped to transform their community outside the countries we serve.
