Pastor Abe Huber is a gifted speaker and authority on the subject of church growth and cell ministry. His verifiable history of transitioning home groups into multi-celled churches has caused ministries worldwide to take note.
Pastor Abe serves as the leader of PAZ (Project AmaZon), spiritual leader of Santarem PAZ Church (which has grown to 62,000 members and over 7,000 cell groups) and its 420 church plants, and is now the Senior Pastor of Fortaleza PAZ Church in Brazil. In just six years, this church has grown from just 20 families to over 6,000 members and 700 home groups!
He has also written books such as One-On-One Discipleship, Membership Covenant, The Barnabas Factor, and The Mash Potato Strategy. He has also co-authored Your Church in Cells with Sabba Liberal and Go and Make Disciples and Cell Leaders’ Training with Ivanildo Gomes.
In 1999, Pastor Abe was inspired to create the ADM: Apostolic Discipleship Model, which is a combination of committed pastoral care and church growth through home cell groups and one-on-one discipleship. With ADM, each member of the church is encouraged to meet with his discipler every week, and so there takes place a real mentoring and accountability within the body. Similarly, each church member is encouraged to participate in his cell group, where he can worship, share, study, pray and evangelize with other believers in an intimate setting—that is, the home. In this way, the church—even with 62,000 members, as Pastor Abe’s church has—is able to provide good pastoral care for the entire body, consistent with the church model described in the book of Acts.
The core of Pastor Abe’s message is so simple: return to the Christian lifestyle experienced by the Early Church as seen in the book of Acts and the Epistles. Win the multitudes for Jesus and have great care for everyone. The ADM motto states “All the world discipled, every disciple a committed leader.”
A thoughtful coach, Pastor Abe provides counseling and mentoring to dozens of pastors and leaders throughout Brazil, both in affiliation with his outreaches and from other denominations, and he has conducted small group, church growth and discipleship seminars throughout the world. Pastor Abe loves to help equip pastors and churches who are making the cell church/disciple transition or planting cell-based churches.
