Pastor Charles Nieman

Charles Nieman is a pastor, author, and international conference speaker. With a passion to teach people how to enjoy the abundant life Jesus came to give, Charles, along with his wife Rochelle, began teaching in a home Bible study with 12 people in 1977. The Bible study would later become Abundant Living Faith Center – a 30,000 member, multi-campus church in El Paso, Texas.

Pastor Charles trains pastoral leaders and speaks in conferences throughout the United States and around the globe. His ministry reach has expanded to South Africa, Australia, Canada, South America, Mexico, England, Indonesia, Scotland, Portugal, Peru, Sweden, Singapore, Iceland, and Norway.

Rochelle Nieman went on to be with the Lord on December 30th, 2012. Her love for God and His Kingdom emanated in who she was and in all that she did. Her drive for excellence remains a touchstone at the church she and Charles co-founded.

Today, Charles, along with his children, Shannon and Jared, continues to pastor Abundant Living Faith Center. 2017 marks forty years as a church. Since those days of small beginnings, the mission remains the same – Charles is still teaching people how to enjoy the abundant life that Jesus came to give. Moving forward, he is determined to live his life with a vengeance and make a bigger difference in this world than ever before.

“For me it’s simple, the thief comes to steal, kill and to destroy, but Jesus came to give us a better life; an abundant life. If Jesus said it, that settles it for me.” – Charles Nieman
