Founded in 2013
In 2012, Pastor Dave Longstaff was asked by the Bay Area Community Church to come up to Menominee and revamp its dying church. He prayed on it and moved to Menominee to lead the charge. That lead to Pastor Dave to change the name to Abundant Life Church. Later in 2013, Pastor Dave Longstaff housed a homeless woman, in essence, creating the Mission. In August of 2013, Pastor Dave Longstaff moved to Texas leaving Pastor Dave Pennell as Pastor of the Church & Mission.
Pastor Dave Pennell, changed a number of things to better facilitate the Mission aspect of his ministry. And started things off for him to increase those served by the Mission.
In June 2014, Pastor Dave Pennell started the process of purchasing a larger space for the growing Church & Mission. The Lincoln school building was a perfect spot but it was sold before we could purchase it. Our second location was the former Menominee Central Catholic School. After around 6 months of negotiations, we purchased the former MCC School.
Abundant Life Mission started transitioning to the former MCC School. The process is a long and hard road but we hope to be in there later this summer.
Stay with us and stay tuned for continued updates as we transition into the new building. Thank you for all your support and God Bless.
