About Abram K-J

Abram Preaching

Photo cred: Dave Singer

I am the pastor of a great church in a seaside community near Boston, a husband and father, and a follower of Jesus.

In my current capacity as pastor, I seek to support, encourage, and equip the congregation, connect with people in the local community, preach and help lead services weekly, and minister with the congregation in a variety of other ways.

In my current capacity as father of two boys and one girl, I drive people to soccer, read books, and try to foster a culture of fold-your-own-laundry.

As you’ll see at Words on the Word, I particularly enjoy studying the Bible as transmitted in Hebrew and Greek. I read some, too, and write about it here.

I have spent more than a decade in youth ministry, working at small, mid-sized, and large churches  in Illinois, Virginia, and Massachusetts.  I have also led in other church ministry capacities, including leading worship music, preaching, and consulting.

I wrote Sustainable Youth Ministry: The Study Guide, which is available for purchase and download here.

    This is a treasure mine Abram. Thank you for a God-centred and God-glorifying blog.

    Hello, where are you studying for your Mdiv? I am just beginning mine, do you have any tips?

      Hi, David–I’m studying at Gordon-Conwell’s urban campus in Boston. Where are you starting?

      Tips? Wow… well, I guess it depends on if you are single, married, with kids, etc., since that would affect what I’d say, but here are three things that have worked great for me, even though I haven’t always done them as consistently as I’d like:

      1. Exercise.
      2. Sleep (go to bed early, wake early to do schoolwork).
      3. Learn how to speed read and skim as needed. Some stuff you won’t want to skim, of course, but other stuff you can.

      (I’ve posted about speed reading on the blog here a few times.)

        GC is a great school. I’ll be studying at Ashland Theological Seminary in Ohio.
        I am single (which means I can be a little more selfish with my time). I’ll keep those tips in mind, thank you.

        Sure thing! I wish you the best as you begin.

      Hi, Moshe! Thanks for your message, and may God bless your teaching efforts. I’m not sure I’m the best person to help you with video technology for teaching classes–what exactly are you trying to do, and with what kind of tools at hand?

What do you think?
