Pursue Life Adult Ministry is a ministry of Arizona Baptist Children's Services & Family Ministries (ABCS). ABCS started as a home for displaced children in 1960. Over the years ABCS has evolved to encompass seven ministries with one mission: to provide hope and care to hurting children and families through Christ-centered ministries. We now serve the full spectrum of Arizona families, from unborn babies to senior adults.
The addition of Pursue Life Adult Ministry enables ABCS to have a special focus on adults aged 50+. While we serve this population through our resource centers, counseling ministry and other ABCS ministries, having a designated adult ministry allows us to better connect with aging adults and equip our church partners to support this growing population. We know that older adults play a critical role within the family as parents of adult children and grandparents, as well as within the broader community. It is a blessing to serve Arizonans of all ages from our five regional offices spanning the state.
A clear vision for Pursue Life Adult Ministry is developing. As we discover more about God's plan for His people as we age, Psalm 92:14 comes to mind: They will still bear fruit in old age: they will stay fresh and green. This is not what the world communicates to us, though. We can and must do something about the mindset that aging is something to fight or surrender to. Instead, God provides a life full of His goodness, and a personal calling to serve Him in ministry uniquely crafted for each individual.
With this inspiration in mind, Pursue Life embraces the infinite possibilities of being fruitful during every season of life. We seek to bridge the gap between adults in need and those willing to be used by God to help.
