How did you first come to LBC?

I had a friend that went to UCSD and he knew people at LBC and hooked me up that way.

How long have you been attending?

About two years now.

What ministries are you currently involved in?

Praise Team, Sonlight (Elementary), and Sports.

What do you enjoy most about Sonlight?

The kids are really enthusiastic about God. They’re a lot of fun to be with.

I know you were really involved with the VBS. Can you share a little bit about that?

There was a lot of work that went into it and now that it’s over, looking back, all the late night hours were worth it. It was great getting to know the staff and kids better. It was fun to see Sam doing the motions and all the other stuff, especially the ones you think are quiet getting into it. It’s really encouraging.

You’re pretty involved in the Mission Bowl. What are your expectations for this year?

(Laughs) For guys we can’t do any worse than we did last year. It’s challenging being a coach, but I’m thankful for everyone’s attitude and I look forward to continuing playing with good sportsmanship.

Well maybe if you play we’ll do better.

(Laughs) We’ll see.

What do you do in your spare time?

I’m working on a Master’s in engineering from an online program at UCLA.

That’s it? No fun?

Umm, I like movies and hanging out with church people.

What do you appreciate most about LBC?

I appreciate that the leaders and everyone here takes seriously that the Bible is the final authority. You see that in their teaching and the way they live their lives.

What’s your most memorable moment from your time at LBC?

The one year I played Mission Bowl, 2007. It was fun getting to know the guys and I love football.

Big Chargers fan right?

Yep. For sure.

Can you tell a story about how you were encouraged by the church body?

Last Sunday night when we were setting up decorations for VBS, seeing people that don’t normally come out and be willing to stay till like 4:30 in the morning. It was fun playing all the games together and serving in that way. And throughout VBS during the teaching times, seeing the teachers teaching the gospel and interacting with the kids was definitely encouraging.

What’s the funniest thing a kid has done in Children’s Ministry?

Cameron’s screaming contest. It was pretty high pitched. I think there was one time when a girl faced a guy, and the boy was really high and the girl was low (laughs).

Alright thanks Abe.
