All About Us
The 4,000 Square foot Carriage Venue can facilitate every event—weddings, corporate/club meetings, family events or any special occasion gathering. We offer a number of customized options and a list of preferred vendors to make your occasion uniquely yours.
The Carriage Venue looks out over large, landscaped grounds that can be enjoyed through the large six windows—a perfect backdrop for photos. Walking the tree-lined grounds you will find several opportunities for photos, including a 840 square foot gazebo with amphitheater that seats 400, a heart shape flower bed and rose garden patio area with a fountain, and 1.5 acre lake with dock. Our amphitheater is a great place to have a ceremony, picnic, birthday party or a nice evening concert.
The Abba House
In 1992 the Abba House was founded by Jim and Chris Sharp in Okeechobee, Florida with the intention of accepting, encouraging, and healing women struggling with depression and addiction. Since then, hundreds of women and their families with
life-controlling problems have since been set free to live productive, sober lives.
Jim and Chris have a rich history in Christian ministry. Before moving 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 Abba House from a capacity of 10 women and children to a a capacity of 36; becoming one of the largest and most effective women’s ministries in the country.
