In March 2003, Elder Anthony set out to establish a community outreach ministry that he and his wife would share together to reach out and strengthen their community. The first event was a Mother-Daughter Luncheon held in May of that year with Co-Pastor Lynn and Evangelist Joy Mifflin as the guest preachers. In August of that year, Anthony was led to turn his face to the wall as he felt the pastoral call on his life growing stronger. A call that he had rejected when first confirmed by his then pastor, Elder Kim Freeman-Walker. On November 16, 2003, in obedience to the Lord Abundant Life Restoration Ministries became a House of Worship. Our first home was in the Historic Queen Anne's County Arts Council building at 206 S. Commerce St in Centreville, MD. It was great relationship but as the needs of the church changed a more permanent site was needed. We relocated to 132 Comet Drive located above Chesapeake Auto in Centreville. The Coopers were great landlords, but feeling that the church needed a more accessible meeting place; Pastor Reed began searching for a place to call our own. By faith in August 2011, we ended the lease and moved our services to Faith Tabernacle Holy Church located at 225 Little Kidwell. God did some wonderful things as the two churches worked together and hosted a block party, VBS, and other outreaches. October 2011 was the turning point and our current property at 1003 Hayden Rd, Centreville was purchased. The Pastor and Members worked untiringly to make the building ready before our Anniversary that year. We continue to make improvements and have established ourselves as a ministry that loves its members and our community! We host an Annual Back Pack giveaway and Annual Thanksgiving Meal to Seniors. We support local organizations and seek ways to give back throughout the year!
