    He was elected as the Deacon in the Grosse Gemeinde in Ohrloff in 1817, but joined the Kleine Gemeinde shortly thereafter. In 1823, he was elected minister and in 1838 as Aeltester to replace brother-in-law Klaas Reimer who had died the previous year. Abraham Friesen was one of the leading churchmen of the Russian Mennonites in his time.
    His sons were often referred to as the "Blumensteiner" Friesens as several of them resided in the village of that name. Most of the family moved to Jansen, Nebraska in 1874.

    In the 1808 census, he is listed at Ohrloff #11. He came from the village of Kalteherberge, Prussia. In the 1835 census, he is listed at Ohrloff #12.
