Abb Thomas has been training teachers for over 40 years! His passion is training those who teach children, teens, and adults to so clarify the Word of God to their students that the students cannot possibly miss what God has for them.
Abb graduated from Tennessee Temple University (TTU) in 1974. In 1969, he was asked by Dr. Lee Roberson to direct the teenage ministry of Highland Park Baptist Church (HPBC) while still attending TTU. A year later he also took on the role of Children’s Ministry Director.
It was at HPBC that Abb began compiling the children’s training course that would later be known as “Master Clubs.” This ministry is a nine-year discipleship ministry for 3 year olds through 6th grade. Master Clubs is now being used in hundreds of churches across America. Abb and Janice were at Highland Park for twenty years until 1990 when they moved the Master Clubs ministry to First Baptist Church in Milford, OH, under the leadership of Dr. Charles Keen and now Dr. Bill Duttry. The ministry is still thriving there today. Having turned Master Ministries and Master Clubs over to an extremely capable staff in 2010, Bro. Thomas has dedicated the rest of his life to helping lay teachers enhance their teaching abilities.
