Rev. Abraham Emmanuel Fenton, a respected minister known as a conference speaker across the United States and in different parts of the world, heard the Lord’s call to begin a ministry that emphasizes on teaching the principles of God’s Kingdom.
He expressed this leading to his wife, the late Rev. Dr. Eve Fenton, a successful schoolteacher, and dynamic minister of the gospel herself, and together they embarked on what would soon become Trinity Fellowship Church. The Fentons, with their five teenage children, were the nucleus of this new ministry. (The Fenton’s youngest son, Aubrey, currently serves as Lead Pastor of Abundant Life Fellowship).
Through a series of miracles, the church acquired 52+ acres of prime property on one of the main corridors of South Jersey, Route 130 in Edgewater Park. The campus spans three townships, Delanco, Edgewater Park, and a smaller part of Willingboro.
Trinity Fellowship Church merged with New Life Fellowship Church and together they became Abundant Life Fellowship Church (ALFC). This merger was a great blessing from the Lord, and a testament to the Church’s passion for unity.
ALFC constructed and dedicated a 1,000-seat worship facility. In 2003, more classrooms and an office wing were added. In 2010, ALFC and its affiliates developed a 100-apartment senior residence, known as Living Springs, and 20 units for disabled veterans and the developmentally disabled. ALFC is committed to making a difference in the lives of people throughout our community.
ALFC installed Rev. Aubrey A. Fenton as the Lead Pastor of the congregation. Since that moment, Pastor Aubrey – together with his wife Lady Lisa Fenton - provide the visionary leadership for ALFC.
The Holy Spirit has guided ALFC through many significant moments. The great recession in 2008, and the global COVID pandemic of 2020, have not stopped the gospel from going forth, nor have they impeded ALFC’s award-winning foodbank from touching the lives of thousands of families. Today, the church has many members, and provides ministries for children, women, seniors, youth, men, and numerous community outreaches.
