Abba House was founded in 1992 by Jim and Chris Sharp in Okeechobee, Florida. Since then hundreds of women and their families with life-controlling problems have been set free to live productive lives. Jim and Chris have a rich history in Christian ministry to people suffering with addiction and abuse. Abba House has been known for love that accepts and encourages change and healing. God brings healing to body, soul and spirit.

Before coming to Cumming, Jim was the Director of The Women’s Ministry of Faith Farm, a ministry Abba House had merged with. The Sharp’s took the ministry from a capacity of 10 to a ministry with a capacity of 36 women and children. This ministry became one of the largest and most effective in the country.

Jim and Chris reestablished Abba House, Inc, a non profit residential ministry in Cumming, GA and began offering care in Georgia in 2000.
