Get to know Pastor Mike of Abbalove Church
There’s only 21 days left until camp; have you registered?
It’s not too late to register, and it’s never too late (or early) to meet our guest speaker who’s all the way from Chino Hills, California. We were blessed enough to say ‘hello’ to Pastor Mike Obadja and ask him a few questions in lead up to our church camp.
How long have you been in ministry?
I have been learning and growing in ministry for over 10 years, and we have been officially planted in Chino Hills, California for about 2 years now.
How did you come to know Christ?
I will share a more detailed testimony later in the camp, but I was one of those lost causes that was destined for failure and destruction. I grew up experiencing every level of abuses and addictions. I was so broken in my identity that I could not see past my pain and dysfunction, and into the great destiny that God has planned for my life. But Jesus came and rescued me at my worst and He now continually brings the best out of me so that I may do the same for those He has put around me.
To me, a dynamic Christian is one who lives out their God-given identity as sons and daughters of the King of Heaven
How would you define a dynamic Christian?
To me, a dynamic Christian is one who lives out their God-given identity as sons and daughters of the King of Heaven (this is what I refer to as the Kingdom ‘swag’). These sons and daughters live to fulfill their God-given destiny, which is to expand His Kingdom here on earth through the different platforms provided by God in society.
God makes His children Holy and whole to prepare them for the holistic mission here on Earth.
What are you hoping to see at our Dynamic Camp?
I long to see every camp participant experience God’s Love, Truth, and Power in such a real, personal way. When we leave the campsite, not only we will see individual transformations, but we will see a birth of communal transformers; ready to take the world for Jesus.
We’re so blessed to have Pastor Mike; his wife, Mira; and Jordan and Jessica Thompson join us at camp this year, and we’re all looking forward to getting to know them more at Collaroy Christian Camp from 26-28 April!
