Meet Adam

IMG_4524

Hello, I’m Adam!  It’s very nice to meet you here.  I’ve been in ministry for roughly seven years now.  I’m a native of South Carolina and lived here for most of my life.  I grew up in Anderson, SC and heard the call to ministry in my senior year of high school, after leading students as a high school leader.  In 2001, I took the call and moved to Columbus, OH, which is where I spent two years of my life attending Valor Christian College.  On that point I obtained a degree in Business and Pastoral Leadership.  The years succeeding, I finished my BA at Ohio Christian University and am currently in graduate school.  I’ve served full-time as a Student Pastor at several churches in Anderson, SC and spent a summer as a Work Projects Staff for a Youth Camp in Greenville, SC.  Today, after serving as a Student Pastor for a number of years, I’m looking forward to the next chapter in ministry, from helping students and speaking at Youth events throughout the United States.

 

 

I am a husband to a stunningly beautiful bride.  I am a Father of two amazing sons, who are springing up like weeds and are my eternal heart.  I love those two dudes to the moon and back.  I enjoy the outdoors, kayaking, delicious tacos, photography, a great craft beer, traveling, spending time with my Creator and people.  I owe my life and heart to my Savior, Jesus Christ.  Without the unwavering grace He has given and poured out on my life, I’d be nothing.  My life has been forever indebted to Him.  I am forever redeemed by the relentless grace He continually gives.

 

 

I also manage and operate a side photography business.  What commenced as a hobby years back is now something I love to lay my heart and effort into.  I have had some of my photog work published in USA Today and local publications in South Carolina.  If you’re in the market or seeking a photographer for your special occasion, event, or just because – I’d love to recount your story through my lens!  Feel free to browse through some of my work on this site and drop a message to me if you’d like more info!  Also, if you ever visit the Columbia, South Carolina area – I’d absolutely love to buy you a cup of coffee and hear your story!  If we’re not able to unite on a local level, you can find me on other socials by clicking one of the buttons above.  I’d love to connect with you there!

My wife and I recently traveled to Myrtle Beach last month on business / pleasure.  I mentioned to my wife and settled on one of the days we were there, I’d taken in the attempt to wake up before sunrise to see the dawn over the Atlantic.  Nerd alert, I know.  I’ll take it.  The…

Jesus didn’t do this on the cross.

Jesus didn’t do this on the cross.

Never before or since has more been lost and gained at the same time as at Jesus’ crucifixion.  The world gained the atoning sacrifice of Christ.  But for many of those present, their hearts broke because the One they believed to be the Savior of the world was dying at the hands of Rome.  A…

Big & small – Life from the playground

Have you ever gone back and visited areas where you were raised as a child?  Maybe it was a certain park you recall playing in, perhaps a grade school you once attended for a solid five years of your life, possibly a church you grew up in, a favorite restaurant the folks brought you to…
