More Able in Christ ...
A teeny-tiny Christian Ministry empowered by God
to do great things for the The Kingdom!
We're a Faith in Action Christian Ministry
The calling and driving passion of More Able in Christ is very simple. Simply stated, we serve Yeshua Ha Massiach - Jesus the Christ by helping our brothers and sisters in our own backyard and around the world to become More Able in Christ.
We are based in rural Fordland, Missouri, USA. Our core ministry initiatives within our region of the US are Disability Outreach and Street Ministry. We remain passionate and deeply committed to our founding mission of witnessing Christ's Love to those who are differently-abled and those who are down on their luck, living on the street, or struggling otherwise to find their way in life (or maybe just survive) for whatever reason. We thought these two core mission areas summed up Yeshua's job description for us.
Then ... in September 2013, God started connecting the dots between Fordland, MO and Nairobi, Kenya. Something pretty amazing started happening at More Able in Christ (Yeshua was preparing an addendum to our job description). He snapped His finger causing a spark that spanned 8,393 miles and all the way across an ocean ... from which The More Able in Christ Alliance with Agape Communion Ministries (ACM) was born. Still, Yeshua was not nearly done at that point. Another addendum was in press which quickly led to a new ministry calling and initiative. From the ACM Alliance arose Project Fresh Start, which aims to alleviate some of the causes and conditions of severe poverty found in the Mathare Slum area of Nairobi
The Shepherd's Assistants at More Able in Christ are very excited about the ACM Alliance and Project Fresh Start. The needs are so great in the Mathare Slums of Nairobi served by Pastor Cleopa, his wife Elizabeth, and the ACM team that even a teeny-tiny ministry with limited resources can make a huge difference for the residents -- now and for eternity!
As you will discover throughout the More Able in Christ website, Bro Cleopa, Sis Elizabeth and everyone reached by ACM and Project Fresh Start have become true family for everyone associated with this teeny-tiny ministry. Praise Yeshua Ha Massiach - Jesus the Christ for bringing us together ... knowing that 8,393 miles and an ocean are no obstacles whatsoever when we open our eyes, minds, hearts, and souls to His Calling.
Project Fresh Start Update
From Cleopa Otieno Adel, Pastor and Founder,
Agape Communion Ministries (ACM) and Co-Founder, Project Fresh Start
Project Fresh Start is an initiative of the More Able in Christ - Faith in Action Alliance with Agape Communion Ministries (ACM), Nairobi, Kenya. It was co-founded by Pastor Cleopa Otieno Adel, his wife Elizabeth, and More Able in Christ Shepherd's Assistants Bill and Glenda Carnagey. Project Fresh Start aims to help break the generational cycles of dire poverty so prevalent in the Nairobi slums served by ACM. We are doing this by addressing both, the spiritual and the physical needs of the Children of God. In so doing, we are equipping the earliest generations of the Nairobi slums with tools, resources, help, hope, encouragement and most importantly; a Living Faith in Christ Jesus -- before they become trapped with little hope of breaking out of the chains of poverty. The earliest generations that we serve will themselves become Salt and Light Messengers in the spirit of Matthew 5:13-16.

No fire and brimstone condemnation
here at More Able in Christ ...
The only thing you'll find here is just good, simple, and genuine Brotherly and Sisterly Christian - Agape Love.
Come as you are and where you are on your journey! In all areas of ministry and outreach, More Able in Christ serves those who come from all denominations and orientations of the Christian faith; and even those with no orientation or interest in Christianity whatsoever. Likewise, More Able in Christ is greatly assisted by Foundation and Ministry Partners -- each of whom are professed Christians -- yet, each comes from quite diverse orientations and expressions of their faith in God and Yeshua.
We at More Able in Christ believe that the Good Shepherd, Yeshua Ha Massiach, does not lead everyone along the same path in matters of faith, practice, and spirituality. He meets us where we are and leads us where we need to be -- if we only listen for and follow that "... still small voice" within (1 Kings 19:11-14).
We believe that there is only one Christian Church, and that Yeshua is the Head of the Christian Church Universal. We further believe that God is too great and encompassing to have a one size fits all path to authentic spirituality. Similarly, there are countless paths that lead to a meaningful life during our earthly existence and our eternal salvation. God has allowed, encouraged, or even has a direct hand in the evolution of so many denominations and expressions of faith so as to cast the nets as far and wide as possible (Matthew 4:18-20). Come one ... Come All! (Revelation 3:19-21).
In our personal worship and our walk with Yeshua, we endeavor to follow the earliest forms of Christian faith and practice -- that is, from the time that Yeshua actually walked on earth. Wherever hearts, minds, ears, and souls are open we attempt to teach, witness, and minister through what we believe are the most organic expressions of The Church as intended by Yeshua and His earliest disciples. However, we never impose our beliefs; nor do we insist that everyone walk on the same path. We serve and reach out to all regardless of religious orientation ... or lack thereof.
