Our lead pastor, Adam settled for ministry after it became clear the NBA wasn’t going to work out. While he claims to have made a three-pointer over Lebron James, ministry is where God has called him. He and his wife, Lisa, live in Wadsworth with their children Trinity, Gideon, Ezekiel, and MJ. Adam has a Masters in Church Leadership from Malone University and currently serves as a professor with Grace University.
Jonathan’s love for music and God come together in his passion to lead worship as our worship pastor. He and his wife, Tera, were called to Wadsworth from Pittsburgh and are unfortunately Steelers fans. Jesus loves Jonathan anyway, and he’ll still go to Heaven. While Jonathan and Tera are young and haven’t started growing their family yet, they do have several really nice guitars.
