Abundant Living is an outreach of University Advancement at Harding University, designed to encourage, inspire and equip older Christians to make the Kingdom of God their #1 priority after they retire from their professions. One of the church's greatest resources, Christians 55 and older offer time, energy, life experience and financial support for the various works that God has prepared in advance for them to do (Eph. 2:10).


Through its quarterly magazine, annual retreat, Senior Adult Rallies, group travel opportunities, and other events, Abundant Living seeks to mobilize older Christians for greater service in the Kingdom during the years following their retirement from the workforce.


"We believe older Christians are as essential to the body of Christ as any other age group. We don't want you to finish life with any ungiven love, unshared compassion, unused energy or unrealized value to the kingdom of God. Please step up to the challenge to make an eternal difference every day of your life by daily renewal of your love for God and continual spreading of His love to others. May God bless you to that end."
