When Abundant Life Christian Center was formed, the Lord gave Pastor Hallam a vision of training up many men and women to be able to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To help fulfill that call, a School of Ministry was established to raise up both full-time and lay ministers.
The purpose of Abundant Life School of Ministry (ALSOM) is to instruct men and women by example and teaching. Paul told Timothy, “commit what thou has learned to faithful men” (2 Timothy 2:2).
For over a decade, men and women have come to ALSOM to discover their destiny in God. They have been equipped, inspired, anointed, and released into their calling. Upon graduation, many students have returned to their local churches to work alongside the vision where they have been planted. Some continue their education to be used of God in a secular occupation, and others have headed off to the nations. Today, ALSOM Alumni can be found ministering in the countries of Mexico, Australia, Nicaragua, Ireland, Scotland, Finland and the U.S. Regardless of their location, they have become men and women that make an impact on their neighborhoods and nations with the Gospel.
This church ministry has now expanded so that students are able to earn Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees. Through becoming a School of Urban Missions or SUM cohort, students can now earn degrees and be launched into ministry better equipped for what lies ahead of them. Our desire is to prepare you for what God has prepared for you. If you are ready for practical, hard-hitting instruction that is highly anointed by God, then ALSOM:SUM is the place for you.
Studying for an accredited ministry degree in three years is easy. It will take some dedication and every moment spent is an investment in the future that will open doors by God. We currently offer Bachelor’s Degrees here at Abundant Life in fields such as Pastoral Ministry, Youth Ministry, Christian Educator, and many more. You can also earn a Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies, Christian Leadership, and Divinity. All of these degrees can be earned at a fraction of the cost of attending a university campus, and they’re fully accredited!
