Abundant Life Services

Christian Counseling, Preaching, Teaching, Seminars, Workshops and Retreats

John Mumper, Founder & Director


John Mumper's degree is in Biblical Studies and Pastoral Ministry. He has spent 22 years as a senior pastor, spending a minimum of 20% of his time doing pastoral counseling and counseling related teaching. He's spent an additional 2 ½ years overseeing counseling services to teens and parents as Executive Director of House of Hope, Susquehanna Valley. In 2007 he began to do part time private counseling and in late 2008 started Abundant Life Services (ALS) as a full time counseling, teaching and equipping ministry.
In addition to private counseling, John speaks and teaches in churches, retreats, and seminars. Throughout the last 35+ years he has had extensive “on the job” training with licensed and degreed counselors and has sought lifelong continuous education through books, workshops, seminars and training courses including sources such as Minereth/Meyer, Emerge Ministries, AACC (American Association of Christian Counselors) and the Dept of Justice/Probation. While John is not a psychotherapist, his approach is the practical application of life changing principles to emotional/relational needs. He primarily works with adults but has had experience working with teens and more limited experience working with children. His experience covers the following areas (not exhaustive): marriage/relationships, depression, survivors of abuse,  substance abuse, parenting, divorce, grief recovery and trauma. In summary, John's counseling is based on 35+ years of pastoral counseling experience and training. He considers the Bible his philosophical foundation for applied life changing concepts. Although John is a Christian Counselor, being a Christian is not a requirement for services. While his philosophy is biblicaly based, his approach is not “preachy” in nature. He is an ordained minister and a non-licensed counselor and is not set up for insurance reimbursement.

Whether teaching, preaching, or counseling, John is always looking to equip people for the abundant life God meant for all of us to have. He sees that abundant life as manifesting itself emotionally, spiritually, and relationally. His goal is to provide practical tools, useful to laying hold of that life as well as to help people put those tools into action. He has seen time and again that through utilizing good tools, awareness, insight and honest hard work people can overcome a variety of otherwise life-dominating behaviors and events. It is this hands on, faith filled approach that comes through in his interaction with people be it one on one, small group, or larger gatherings.
