Our Mission and Vision
Abundant Life Ministries is a community of collaboration focused on health, healing, worship and loving service. We are affiliated with the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina and in partnership with Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit and other local churches and organizations.
Our Mission is to build bridges and community-level relationships to increase collective body-mind-spirit health in the face of widespread mental illness, violence, generational poverty and social marginalization.
Our Vision is of a more connected community where neighbors seek, advocate for, and co-create conditions where equitable access to housing, health care, and flourishing are available to all.
We affirm and embrace our neighbors who are refugees and immigrants, of all religions, faiths, sexualities and gender expressions as we love, serve, and grow together into a more beloved community.
Live an Abundant Life
Every Tuesday during this pandemic, we deliver dinner, groceries, diapers and other supplies to our neighbors, pray over the phone and in yards, and connect our nurse to uninsured people needing support.
Cooks, delivery drivers, gardeners, pantry managers, donations drives, and leaders to help identify the gifts of those ready to help are all needed!
Contributions support community development, nutritional access, and health service connection.
Our Guiding Faith
Jesus says, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)

- Relationships as Drivers for Justice WorkOur nurse and meal and pantry by themselves will not dismantle the structures that keep so many of our neighbors in poverty and pain. We know this, which is why we try to keep our focus on building relationships of mutual trust and care. Because of the weekly meals we shared, and the stories weContinue reading “Relationships as Drivers for Justice Work”
- Playfulness and AbundanceWho says we can’t play with our food? Taking delight in each other in the time we have together, and looking at something that seems useless, wrong, disposable, and turning it into laughter – that’s part of living an Abundant Life. Today I’m in quarantine, waiting for chicken pox to go away (yes, apparently asContinue reading “Playfulness and Abundance”
