My name is J.D. Abell and I joined the staff here at Ankeny Free Church in the fall of 2018. I am excited to help students know and follow Jesus. Everything we do in student ministries is fueled by that thought. On a typical Sunday night, we welcome our students into a fun environment and engage them with the Bible through relevant teaching and then connect even further with them with a small group time with volunteer adult leaders. I have a passion for students to enter into a relationship with Jesus and grow closer to God. A little about myself, I served six years in the Army National Guard; enjoy
deep dish pizza; and traveling with my wife of five years, Kayley and two year old daughter Emma Grace. To find out more about our Student Ministries email me or signup for our weekly Youth ENews below.
