Abiding Place School of Ministry is called to bring the transforming presence of God into all our spheres of influence, bringing the Kingdom of God into every encounter, and seeing the people we touch healed, delivered, and transformed to go and do the same in our communities, our cities, our nations, and all the world.

Classes are scheduled for Tuesday evenings, beginning Tuesday, September 12, 2018.      

Most classes start at 6:30 pm. Make sure to check back to verify the starting times and dates. Classes are discontinued during major holiday weeks.
