Bethel Abundant Life Ministries started in 1986 by Pastor Edwin Bradshaw and his family, with the name Dorchester Wesleyan Church on Harvard Street in Dorchester, MA. The church started with (5) five members, several of whom are still members of the said church. Shortly after the church was relocated to 44 Moultrie Street in Codman Square, MA where we are presently worshiping. The church started out of a prevailing need to reach out to the community, particularly to the young people. After much prayer the church became an independent ministry with a name charge as Bethel Abundant Life Ministries. Bethel's aim is to reach as many families and to meet their needs, as we obey God's great commission. God has been good to us in allowing us to help many families; we look forward with great anticpation to continue to touch many lives. We are praying that our Sovereign Lord will continue to show us favor by providing us with means to build our sanctuary.
