ABBEVILLE, Ala. (WDHN) — An effort to build a ministry center in Abbeville on hold due to a lack of resources.
Senior Pastor Freddie James Smith Jr. is reaching out to the community for help to finish building Outlet Ministries’ “Refuge Center.”
Smith said the center will house several ministries to help senior citizens, provide childcare and assist ex-felons re-entering society.
Outlet Ministries was founded in Baker Hill 15 years ago and moved to Abbeville around eight years ago.
The project is nearly done, but the ministry needs a little help crossing the finish line.
“(We’re) just grateful for what God is doing here, asking if there is anybody out there that wants to support what we’re doing here,” Smith said. “We definitely appreciate anything that someone is willing to give to help us carry out this kingdom we’re in.”
The ministry has a GoFundMe page set up. You can find it by searching “Dash to the finish line campaign.”
So far, the go fund me has raised $1,200 out of $30,000.
