City Wide scavenger hunt

by ABI Admissions (4/18/2012)

We all met in the chapel. The prizes were on display. The drivers all jockeyed for position and the hunters' curiosity was sparked by the hunt that was to come. We sorted out our groups and gave them their list of items to find and places to go. The tension built as we waited for that one last person who was running late. The prize was set before the eyes of the participants, spurring them to action. The word "go" was uttered and off they went in a mad dash. Some got lost in the building trying to find their cars; others left like the building was on fire. A calm came over the chapel; the eerie quiet now juxtaposed against the rowdy excitement that had been in the room moments before.

Each group had an awesome time even the groups that did not win the prize. When they all returned each group talked about the adventures they had. Each compared tales of how they accomplished the tasks they set out to do. All that talk, however, had to result in victory. One group's story was the victorious one.One foursome went through and conquered the scavenger hunt of 2012 all the bragging rights and glory is theirs until next year.

Sing unto the Lord!

by ABI Admissions (4/14/2012)

There truly was a buzz in the air during free period Yesterday. The question rolled around in everyone's mind: "What are we going to sing on Saturday?!" To start things off, Leticia Gillet had our feet stomping while leading the solo for the upbeat gospel song "Heaven Bound". Students welcomed in the sweet presence of God during the second song "Perfect Praise". We expect God to do great things during Saturdays service! To God be all the glory.

Knowledge its not just for the head, its for the heart.

by ABI Admissions (4/14/2012)


Brother Joki taught us the ins and outs of youth ministry. He instructed us in how to connect with the younger generation; how much work goes into youth ministry; having a passion with the youth and how to use technology to reach the next generation.


My calling is to be a missionary to the country of Spain, but after his class, I felt such as strong tug on my heart to go into youth ministry. If that becomes part of my calling, I would adhere to it in a heartbeat!


Bro. Joki's passion for youth is still going strong!He kept repeating to us his age and that people would tell him that he's too old to still be in youth ministry. The words of a teacher here at ABI propelled him into youth ministry and he still hangs onto those words. The simple statement "Gregg I believe you are going to go far"; has been a source of motivation as he preached 16 youth camps, taught two North American Youth Congresses and preached all around the world. To have a man like Bro. Joki pour his heart and his passion into me is just amazing. He encouraged me and the rest of my class, and I am so thankful that he came to teach me.

Shop until you drop!

by ABI Admissions (4/14/2012)


Everybody loves to shop, even if it's just window shopping!


After a full morning of learning, singing and praising God it was time to relax and have fun! Students piled into the ABI van and off we went headed toward the enormous, crazy and yet delightful Mall Of America (MOA). Three hours slipped by quickly as we explored the expansive building. Mall of America is one of the top tourist destinations in the country! We had a blast not only shopping but riding roller-coasters, looking at the underwater world and of course enjoying the food!

More Prayer, More Power

by ABI Admissions (4/14/2012)


"More Prayer, More Power" is a motto ABI lives by. It is important be able to communicate to God personally. Is there a greater honor and privilege than this? When God's people begin to pray God moves. He does the miraculous. Lives are changed, hearts are mended and bodies are healed.


Prayer Power House is a time that students get hold of God. We worshiped and sought God. He answered. Young people felt the tug from God and they answered the call. Jesus Christ poured out anointing. The sweet sound of many voices joined in prayer, weeping as God convicted hearts, and the burden for lost souls was revived in our lives.


Jesus gave the great commission, "And he said unto them, Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15). Take a moment; just stop. Listen; is God trying to tell you something? Read His Word and pray, you might go in a direction you never dreamed because you were sensitive and listened for the voice of God.
