ALM History

Abundant Living Ministries was established by Bishop Hugh C. and Pastor Diane Thomas, in 1980, they began this work in Hollywood at a widow’s home.  In 1983, the church grew to over one hundred people and they had to rent a storefront and very quickly, they outgrew that facility and moved to a larger facility.  In 1986, God put it in the heart of Bishop Hugh to “possess the land”, as a result, they purchased the 15 acres Campus we presently reside in today.  The emphasis has always been placed on spreading the Gospel through local and global missions around the world.

Pastor Thad and Frances Thomas, our Senior Pastors, continue to build on the foundation laid by our Bishops.  Their goal is to equip and train people to fulfill their purpose and calling so they can be used inside and outside the local church to expand the Kingdom of God.
