Adam came to Christ in 1998 during his first month of college at OSU. In God’s good providence, a sweet Hawaiian girl named Grace, from Lahina, Maui, came to Christ the day after Adam did. Farm boy from Hood River, OR – meets Grace from Lahina in their first Bible study together; and a budding friendship grew into marriage in 2002.
Adam and Grace served as missionaries in Recife, Brazil for about two years, until they were forced to leave the country. Since then, their family has grown to include a quiver of 5 strong boys and one sweet girl.
Since early on in his relationship with Jesus, Adam felt a calling to teach the Bible. Falling in love with the Savior Jesus, Adam also fell in love with His Word. He would often spend evenings pouring over the Scriptures and books on theology and Christian ministry. For “fun” while living in Brazil, he would sometimes write up different book reviews, tests, and other training materials. After returning from Brazil, the Lord called Adam to teach several classes in Cornerstone School of Ministry, and later to lead the school.
Dr. Adam recently earned his Ph.D. in Educational Studies, from Biola University. He also serves as part of the senior leadership team at Calvary Corvallis, specifically in the areas of leadership, Christian education, and teaching in the church.
