Rev. Abe Smith, Lead Pastor Abe is originally from Hot Springs, Arkansas, and has been serving in ministry since 1993. While attending Baylor University he served as a Young Life leader, which had two significant impacts on his life. First, he loved to see high school students grow in Christ and be radically transformed for God’s glory. Abe knew God was calling him to help people connect with the life-giving love of Christ. Second, he met Amy, who was also a Young Life leader, and later became his wife! Abe and Amy continue to serve together in their day-to-day lives.
The Smiths have three daughters, Abigail, Anna Beth, and Addison, one son, Abram, and a labrador named Ace. The whole “A” name thing can be confusing, but if you spend any time with the Smiths you will soon discover it is a perfect fit. The family is close knit, fun to be with, and enjoys sharing life with others.
