Abide Leadership

The leadership here at Abide is comprised of men and women who love, care and pray for every single person in the church. If you have questions for any of our staff, feel free to reach out and email them or call our church office to speak with them.

  • Jamal L. Hyman

    Lead Pastor

    Jamal is a native of Plymouth, NC. Jamal played college basketball before receiving his Bachelor's degree from Lancaster Bible College. He has also received a Master's degree from Liberty University. He is married to Sabrina, and they are parents of Judah, Selah, and Shiloh.



Abide Bible Church is an elder-led, deacon-served, and congregational-affirmed church. This means that the congregation wields authority in a few areas yet truly delegates its authority to a group of godly, qualified elders to exercise spiritual oversight over the flock. The deacons assist the elders in their leadership of the church by caring for the practical and/or temporal needs of the congregation.
