 AGAPE OUTREACH MINISTRY  --  (October - June)

For almost four decades (1982, started by Jim Liljegren), the ABF Agape Singers, Tech Team and Sponsors have traveled on tour to minister in music & testimony. The contemporary vocal group also ministers at ABF events and services throughout the year.
Changes began in the Fall of 2017 as the AGAPE SINGERS moved to Wednesday evenings with a relatively new format and vision. From then on, the group is called AGAPE OUTREACH MINISTRY. This began a new dimension of ministry and music.

Agape Outreach allows high school students to experience and grow in their faith by…

• Evangelizing for Christ through music and message
• Serving others for Christ in word and action
• Sharing the love of God

Agape rehearses the entire school year to perform and minister in juvenile halls, rescue missions, recovery centers, churches, teen centers, safe houses, men’s & women’s shelters, and children’s hospitals, locally and throughout California on a weekend mini-tour in April 2019 and a week-long tour in June 2019.
