Pastors Jim and Samantha Herring  
Jim and Samantha Herring are the founders and Senior Pastors of Abundant Life Family Church located in Fort Worth, Texas.  They are originally from North Carolina where they met and married.  Shortly after marriage, they felt the call of God to receive in-depth ministerial training, so they moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma to attend Rhema Bible College.
Pastor Jim graduated from Rhema in 1993, specializing in pastoral ministry.  He also received a Bachelor of Science degree in Church Ministry from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas.
After graduation, they accepted a ministry position with a local church and started serving. They served in many areas over the next few years, gaining valuable information and training that would prepare them for God’s next assignment.
In 2001, God led them to start a church in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.  With a strong desire to see people saved, restored, taught, and trained, they founded Abundant Life Family Church.  Since its inception, Abundant Life has continued to grow and work to create ministries that help people become committed followers of Jesus.  
Pastors Jim and Samantha are both gifted Bible teachers who share God’s Word in a passionate, humorous, and practical way.  They have traveled nationally and internationally teaching in churches and Bible schools. 
In addition to taking care of God’s family, Jim and Samantha also find great joy in spending time with and raising their two children.
