Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Adam gave his life to Jesus at age 18. Shortly after, he attended Calvary Chapel Bible College in York, England. While studying abroad he met his bride, Jess, and he followed her to her hometown of Tucson, Arizona. He served as an assistant pastor at Calvary Tucson from 2006 to 2014, then moved with his bride and their two children to Orlando Florida, where they and an amazing team of Christians planted Reach Orlando Church. Adam has a passion for equipping other Christ-followers to grasp the intellectual strength of the Christian faith. Through prayer, Adam and his family returned to Tucson in July 2020 with a heart to establish a school of ministry, through which Christians are established in theology, learn to exercise their spiritual gifts, and effectively engage the culture with the good news of Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that every good and perfect gift is from God (James 1:17). Relationships are the greatest gifts, and Adam is beyond blessed to share life with his intelligent, encouraging bride and their two highly energetic kids. Life is joy-filled when Jesus is at the center of it all.
