Adam was born in the mid-west but spent his teen years on the east coast. He heard the gospel from many people over many years, but it didn't sink in until he heard it from a “crazy” street preacher during his time at college. He surrendered his life to Christ in 1990.
Through and after college, he had the honor of working with a variety of missions groups, spending three years teaching English in Japan and four and a half years distributing Christian media to countries in west Africa and eastern Europe while living in the UK.
Eventually God lead him back to the US—to sunny southern California where he met his lovely and godly wife, Holly. He received his Masters of Divinity degree from Talbot School of Theology in 2008.
Adam and Holly moved to Fairbanks in 2009, where they have been happily living with their two healthy and energetic daughters as Adam serves as one of Bethel’s pastors.
