Adam was born in California, but proud to have been raised in Oregon. He and his wife, Abbie, along with their first daughter, Isla, moved back to the Roseburg area in March 2011, and began attending Redeemer's. Adam joined the Redeemer's staff in June 2011 and is happy to be doing something that he loves. Their second daughter, Arli, was born later that year.
Being the product of a Christian upbringing, Adam was involved in ministry from a young age. Always involved in worship and arts, along with children's ministries, it wasn't until his time at Grace Community Church in Chico, CA that Adam really felt that God had placed on his heart a strong desire to be involved with ministry full time.
