Our pastors are Lynn and Tammy McWherter, who have been involved in ministry for over 25 years, serving as Senior Pastor at Abundant Life Worship Center since August of 1989.
Lynn is originally from Dresden, Tennessee, and is a pastor's son. Tammy is a native of Murray, Kentucky and lived there until she and Lynn were married. Lynn and Tammy have both served the Lord since they were very young, with Pastor Lynn beginning to preach at just 12 years of age. They met each other in church, were high school sweethearts and were married in October of 1987.
Lynn and Tammy were members of the first graduating class of Christian Fellowship High School in Benton, Kentucky, and Lynn went on to receive his Bachelor's Degree in Theology from Southern Bible Institute and Seminary. Tammy received her Master's Degree in Human Resource Management from Mid-Continent University.
Immediately following their marriage, Lynn and Tammy began to serve at Abundant Life as Youth Pastors. Following a year of Youth Ministry here, Lynn and Tammy served as Team Leaders of Living Parables Drama Company, an evangelistic drama team that toured the United States in the late 1980s. Following the year on the road, they felt God call them to return to Calvert City and take the vacant pastorate of this church where they have continued to serve since 1989.
