Abide

“Abide Ministries, Inc. exists to strengthen families. This is accomplished in part by helping people become trusting and intentional about what God is doing in and through their lives. Abide offers a collective of courageous branches that serve a variety of people groups. These branches are contracted to meet specific needs of all living things - people, creatures, plants, and the environment; allowing great needs to be met through qualified leaders in specific ministry vocations. As the need and opportunity for innovative ways to strengthen families arise, Abide develops and launches new programs, branch ministries, and non-profits, then provides coaching and financial & organizational structure assistance to enable them to meet the needs of families efficiently and effectively.”

Charting impact

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

Family counseling and discipleship. Restoring sex trafficking victims to wholeness. Disrupt sex trafficking. Restoring abuse survivors. Restoring families. Providing art opportunities to at-risk children. Trauma counseling for children and grief support for widows. Racial reconciliation workshops. Develop courageous and innovative workers and organizations. Community and University discipleship.

Create a collective of leaders who are willing to sacrifice all to develop and manage courageous programs (branches). Abide develops leaders. When appropriate Abide helps branch managers start their 501(3)c non-profit.

Branch or program managers raise personal support. Senior leaders work to develop branch managers. As programs mature, Abide seeks support from foundations and corporations, Abide has 25 years of experience. Senior staff has experience ranging from running a web consulting business to the award-winning executive leadership of non-profits.

We have restored trafficking victims for over 10 years. Our Sex trafficking disruption branch manager is recognized as an expert regionally and nationally. Our racial reconciliation program has gained regional recognition. Our children's art program is expanding nationally. We have successfully discipled addicts and students from a variety of cultures. Our counseling and art programs continue to provide support to children and adults who would not otherwise have access to services. Our next step is to grow our financial support so our workers can work full time.
