Pastor Steve Thomas, Canton, OH
2021 Canton Immediate Need Fund
Pastor Steve Thomas is the senior pastor of Abundance of God Christian Church in Canton, Ohio. He injured his shoulder and had to have reconstructive shoulder surgery, taking possibly 6 months to recover. Since his pastor salary is part-time, he worked a 2nd job providing transportation for people who needed help getting to doctor's appointments, etc. With his arm in a sling while he recovered, he was unable to drive, thus losing his 2nd income. Betterment paid for 1 month of 2 car payments, plus 1 month each of his electric and gas bills so Pastor Steve could focus on his rehab.
