Pastor Jeffery C. Fox, founder and shepherd of Abundant Life Church of Deliverance, has been a servant in ministry for over 17 years. In light of his genuine concern for the hearts and souls of all people, it is only fitting that he would be called by God to Pastor in 2009. Pastor Fox is extremely passionate yet humble about his call to preach the gospel. His acceptance of the assignment to pastor was based on a desire to see lives restored and set free through the word of God. Our pastor sincerely believes that once an individual receives and consistently applies The Scriptures, a life of abundance predestined by God, can be enjoyed by all believers.
The Abundant Life Church of Deliverance was birthed from a God inspired vision revealed through John 10:10 which speaks of, “Living the abundant life through the word of God”. Pastor Fox and his wife, Co- Pastor Anna Fox, flow in all aspects of ministry under the direction of the Holy Spirit. This approach to ministry has been cultivated through the teaching they have received from their spiritual parents, Bishop Daniel Robertson, Jr. and Co-Pastor Elena Roberson of Mt. Gilead Full Gospel International Ministries. Due to the visionary leadership of our shepherd, within three years of ministry, Pastor Fox was a facilitator in the miraculous acquisition of 30.7 acres of land in Chester, Virginia!
Pastor Fox holds a tremendous love for people, communities and the nations. Though he maintains an uncompromising conviction for a standard of holiness, he is a compassionate leader that has an innate God given ability to understand, relate to and reach people from all walks of life. This characteristic is evidenced in his participation in local community events as well as international missions to various countries such as Africa, Israel and others to share to gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Pastor is mindful to take full advantage of every opportunity to cultivate those under his leadership to become leaders themselves in effort to fulfill scripture to: “Go out the highways and hedges and compel men to come that my house may be filled.” Luke 14:23
The mantle of servanthood has been present early in the life of our Pastor in that soon after completing high school, Pastor Fox enlisted and served in The United States Army. In continued preparation for his future assignment to shepherd the people of God, He earned an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration from Midlands Technical College in Columbia, South Carolina. Pastor Fox furthered his biblical understanding through his education at The Virginia Union University School of Theology in Richmond, VA and Seraphim Bible Institute in Petersburg, VA respectively. With a relentless desire to understand the depth of GOD’s Word, Pastor Fox also has received training by way of the Ever Increasing Word Training Center in Darrow, Louisiana.
Pastor Fox is a firm believer in marriage and family. He and Co-Pastor Anna have shared over 40 years of marriage and are the loving parents of two adult children, Nathan and Nicole and proud grandparents of seven grandchildren.
