Pastor Jonathan Willey, Lead Pastor

As the founding pastor, Pastor Jonathan has a passion for carefully unpacking the truths of Scripture. He has served at  Abundant Life Worship Center for 27 years. He and his wife have two children.

 

Pastor Linette Willey, Associate Pastor & Women's Ministry Director

Linette was born in Salisbury, Maryland and has lived her entire life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She started her life of ministry as a teenager, singing Gospel music with her family. In 1970, Linette married Jonathan Willey and he joined the Davis Family as a musician and evangelist. Together they ministered throughout the United States and on foreign soil.

In 1980 a different phase of ministry began for Jonathan and Linette and the Davis Family. Linette’s mother was supernaturally healed by God of crippling arthritis, and as a result from 1980 through 1985 the ministry began to take on a healing emphasis.

In 1985 Jonathan and Linette began their pastoral ministry in Delaware. In 1988 the Lord led them to start a new work of faith in Salisbury, Maryland. From August 1988 until the present time they have served as Pastors of Abundant Life Worship Center.

The principle focus of Linette and Jonathan’s ministry is that God is a good God who wants us to have life and have it more abundantly. Linette’s ministry focus is on teaching, preaching and healing the sick. Linette ministers with a tangible anointing of Holy Spirit, especially in the area of physical healing.

Linette teaches a much needed message for the Body of Christ today; God is a good God, and that what Jesus Christ did for us on Calvary is a complete package deal. Christ is our Complete Savior and by looking to Him, we can have life and have it more abundantly, to the full, until it overflows.
