LEADERSHIP

Charles Nieman
FOUNDER & SENIOR PASTOR

As an El Paso native, Charles Nieman is no stranger to the Sun City. After marrying his late partner Rochelle, they found themselves at one of the largest churches in El Paso. Feeling empowered by the teachings of the Lord, they began a small bible study in 1977. What began as a small gathering of 12 grew into what we know today as Abundant.

By following God’s calling, they were able to build a church from the ground up, one that welcomes individuals from all walks of life and faiths. His main message to this day is how to enjoy an Abundant Life, embracing positivity and blessings, something that all of God’s children deserve. Following four decades of teaching, today, Charles is the Senior Pastor at Abundant. He is a notable author, international speaker and podcaster.

A true family man, Charles is happily married, a dedicated father to his two children, Jared and Shannon, and a grandfather.

Favorite Scripture: “ The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 (NKJV)

Shannon Nieman
LEAD PASTOR

Shannon grew up in the church. With the positive influence of her parents, she always had a strong relationship with the Lord. Embracing her faith from an early age, she learned “church is not where we go, it’s who we are.”

Originally thinking she would be pursuing a path in law, God had greater plans than her own. She looked up to her late mother as a female powerhouse in the ministry and had positive reinforcement thanks to the support of a mentor in the church. A people person, Shannon values building relationships and getting to know individuals and their unique stories. Naturally, she gracefully embraced the role of pastor. As a leader, she strives to be a voice of strength, truth and light.

Shannon currently serves as one of the Lead Pastors at Abundant Church and is the founder of One Sisterhood, Abundant’s women’s ministry. She is passionate about female empowerment, parenting, and building ties in the community. Shannon is a devoted mother to her two children.

Favorite Scripture: “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31 (NIV)

Rochelle’s Legacy

Rochelle Nieman grew up in a small town in Raton, New Mexico. At 18 years old, she moved to El Paso to pursue her studies at the University of Texas at El Paso, where she ultimately ended up falling in love with Charles. Rochelle first received Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Influenced by her passion and faithfulness, Charles soon after embraced the word of God.

In 1970, they were happily married and had two children, Shannon and Jared. Seven short years later, Charles and Rochelle felt called to teach God’s word. What began in a small railroad union hall with 20 people eventually grew to Abundant today, 30,000+ members and growing.

She happily dedicated her life to serving as co-pastor of the church among many other notable leadership roles. Her commitment to the ministry was driven by her belief that every man and woman, and every child, regardless of circumstance, must know that there is a God who loves them unconditionally and who wants them to live the life He has for them.

Pastor Rochelle passed away on December 30, 2012. May her light always shine and her legacy live on
