Pastor Christian Guzman, his wife, Alisha, and their family moved to North Carolina in February of 2011 to work at Iglesia Bautista Vida Abundante. During their first year, the Lord put the desire in their hearts to start a Christian School out of the church. In August 2012, Abundant Life Christian Academy started with just 18 students in grades K-7. The Lord has blessed and each year the school has grown. It is the desire of Pastor and Alisha Guzman to see students succeed not only academically but also spiritually.
