Adam grew up in Wheeling, WV and came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as a high school student. He has a Bachelor of Music degree from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. In 2012, he graduated from the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary and was then ordained and installed as the second pastor of the Bloomington RPC. He is also certified by the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (formerly known as NANC). Adam is married to Anne and they have three sons. In late 2017, Adam received a call to pastor the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Lafayette, IN, and was installed as that congregation’s new pastor in February 2018. We wish Adam and his family all the best in his new pastorate.
In addition to our two pastors, our congregation also has six ruling elders and six deacons.
