    Welcome to our home on the world wide web! It’s been almost nine years since Crystal and I got married. You can find some of the pictures from our wedding in the ”Family Pictures” page on the site, as well as other pictures from some of our other adventures. You can also read a little about how we met and our pre-wedding adventures in the our story page.

    James Graduated in 2006 from NBC with a bachelors in Pastoral Ministries, and completed His Master of Arts in Pastoral Leadership from Olivet Nazarene University in December 2012. James received his first District Ministers License in 2006 from his home district in California. He was ordained in May 2015 on the Louisiana District of The Nazarene. He currently is serving as the Pastor of DeRidder Church of the Nazarene.

    Crystal Graduated from Colorado Christian College in 2010 with a BS in Organization & Project Management, she completed her Masters in Human Resource Management from Indiana Wesleyan in 2012. She currently is working for PCA as part of their Human Resource team at the paper mill.

    James worked for two years with a company in Colorado Springs that does Audio, Video, and Lighting. He worked in the commercial install division as the Service Coordinator. He worked with a good group of guys that service everything from store sound systems all the way up to pro sports stadiums. It’s been a great learning experience for him to have this opportunity.

    We have seen a busy few years here in DeRidder, Louisiana. God has been teaching us a lot and growing us in everything we do. Last year ended with a bang as we welcomed our second child to the family Asher Gabriel Abenroth. His big sister loves him and he has been a bundle of joy to have as we watch him learn and grow.

Once again welcome to our site. We hope and Pray that God will bless you today! Please enjoy your time here, and if you want to say hi please feel free to send us an e-mail.

Please note we are updating the site so some things will change over time please come back and see what is new.
