Pastor Abner is a follower of Jesus from Minneapolis, Minnesota! Adventist Education played a huge role in his conversion to Jesus as a young freshman in high school. At the end of his senior year in high school, he felt a profound call to pastoral ministry. Pastor Abner went to Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska for his BA in theology. Throughout high school and college he ministered through literature evangelism in Philadelphia and Minnesota, worked at Christian summer camps in Minnesota and Colorado, and did pastoral internships at the Southview SDA Church (Minneapolis, MN) and the Brighton SDA Church (Brighton, CO).
While in college, Abner met Debbie, his wife as of May 2017. Less than a month into marriage they drove from Lincoln, Nebraska to Auburn, WA. Now they get to minister with the Auburn City SDA Church. They love cheering on the Seattle Sounders, Seahawks and the Minnesota Timberwolves. Pastor Abner loves hiking, playing sports––especially soccer, reading, writing, and traveling with Debbie.
