After 15 years of meeting in numerous rental locations, the church moved into her first facility in March 2004. Completion of phase 2 in June 2006 provided a state-of-the-art children's and student ministries facility, as well as expanded lobby space and a new Life Café espresso shop. In April of 2008 (Easter Sunday) Abundant Life opened the doors of its second campus in the Parkrose Community. This campus marked the beginning of the multi-site adventure that God has laid before us, so that we as a church can continue the mission of reaching as many people as possible for Jesus Christ. Abundant Life launched a third campus in Sandy, Oregon in October 2010. The Sandy Campus meets at Mt. Hood Athletic Club.More importantly than where we've been, however, is where we are going! We celebrate what God has done in the past...
