View from Mount Alford Lodge


Geoff and Beryl Hopson

Mount Alford lodge was the fulfilment of a dream for Pastor Geoff Hopson and his wife Beryl. The Christian Life is a journey of discovery; when it rests in a firm relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, new truths will be revealed throughout the journey.


The primary purpose of all that is planned for Mount Alford Lodge is to encourage people in their journey of discovery, so that those who participate will grow in understanding of their identity in Christ. The name "Abiding Life Discoveries Australia" has been chosen to represent all programme activities at Mount Alford Lodge.


Betty Wells is the Executive Director of Abiding Life Ministries. Her husband, Dr Michael Wells, founded and directed ALMI from 1989 until his passing in October 2011. Betty never aspired to co-pastor with Mike and enjoyed staying in the background, supporting him, running the office, organizing his trips, and helping communicate with ministry folks all around the world.

However, as way leads on to way in The Way and as new chapters in life are entered, in his absence she now directs the ministry with a heart toward glorifying the Lord as He continues what He began at ALMI.

Betty has edited all of Mike’s writings and continues in the ministry’s administration work, helping to spread Mike’s messages and materials in every way possible.
