About Abb Thomas

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.

Training Teacher Resources

Children's Church
Children’s Church: One of Our Great Soulwinning Ministries is a book designed to grow your children’s ministry workers. This group of church servants are often out of sight and out of mind, but they are in the heat of a spiritual battle for the hearts of children. Our pulpits in America and our mission fields are full of former “bus kids.”
Teaching Children God's Wonderful Word
I loved doing this book for those who teach the children. So many teachers I meet almost every week fail to read. Some actually have little desire to put in the effort to improve. How about a book that takes you three minutes a week to find a new idea for teaching children? Would you give God three minutes a week to improve your teaching?
Sharing Christ with Children
I love to teach church teachers and workers about the great value of reaching children and teens. The ideas here come from forty years of ministering to children and teens. It’s titled for children, but the same ideas apply to the teenage arena. The forty-one chapters in this 239-page book will give you the organization, the Biblical foundation.
