Giving with a Heart of Worship
The first time the word “worship” is used in the Bible is in Genesis 22. Abraham went to worship with a heart to give to God sacrificially.
“And Abraham said to his young men, ‘Stay here with the donkey; the lad and I will go yonder and worship, and we will come back to you.’”
—Genesis 22:5 (emphasis added)
We Give to...
We give to be living proof of a loving God to a watching world.
We give because God owns it all.
“The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.”
When we understand God gave us everything we have, we can give back to Him with open arms and an open heart.
Living Generously Allows You to be
Living Proof of a Loving God.
Your generosity brings to light the irresistible love of Jesus.
Giving makes families, the Church, and the next generation stronger.
Our family and children’s ministry provide teaching materials, support, and classes to help parents disciple their children because we know that discipleship and spiritual conversations start at home. We also believe today’s youth is critical to the future of our society. Fusion students is our youth program designed to be a safe and enjoyable place where middle and high school students can hear relevant biblical teaching.
God is using Abundant Life to strengthen and heal marriages, families, and individuals through ministries such as Paradigm, Re:gen, Singles, Men’s and Women’s Groups, Care Groups, Counseling Services, Merge, and much more.
Not only do we want to strengthen and heal, but we also love to celebrate! We host fun events such as Revival Family Weekend and an annual carnival where more than 12,0000 people attend and hear the message of salvation.

Giving builds the community and makes the Gospel irresistible.
Abundant life believes in meeting the needs of the community so that doors are opened to sharing the irresistible love of Jesus to those around us. We partnered with more than 600 nonprofits in various ways throughout the year, such as the Love KC event, fueled by the passion for seeing lives changed by Jesus. Through this community outreach, pregnant and single moms, cancer patients, young men in substance abuse treatment, and many more are served.
We meet the needs of families in the community through Abundant Life Food Pantries located in Lee’s Summit and Independence, helping meet needs in our communities by providing free food and other resources to those in need. We provide respite care for children and families with special needs and host a Back to School Giveaway where school-aged children in the Independence and Blue Springs area can get free school supplies, hygiene products, clothes, and haircuts.

Giving fulfills the Great Commission.
To fulfill the Great Commission, we want to do the impossible through Jesus. We are multiplying gathering places in new locations to reach more people for Jesus, from building the new Crossroads Campus in downtown Kansas City to equipping people everywhere to plant Church Houses.
We are also reaching the nations in our local neighborhoods. Our Live Sent Mission is a unique ministry that goes out into the local community to reach the nations by serving and meeting with refugees, international students, inner-city youth, and other cultures within our community. We believe Jesus is building His Church, and we are eager to be a part of God’s kingdom advancing.
