About Adam
  • Education: Bachelor of Theology Currently completing honours
  • Experience: In my fourth year of ministry
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I offer these in the hope of building the church universal and giving the glory to God. Hope it helps.
  • Family: Married with two daughters. My wife and I enjoy the opportunity that The Salvation Army provides us to be in ministry together, with equal opportunity for service.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Don’t all parents like their kids sermons???
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She tells me the truth...
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Why articulate polysyllabically when colloquial conversation will suffice?
  • Books that have had an impact: Anything by Robert E. Webber. I was surprised at how his death affected me. He was a man of great wisdom with much to say to the church in our day.
  • Hobbies: Golf, music, time with my family.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Do you know Jesus? If not, why not?
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Someone passed out literally in the back row. We had to stop and make sure he was OK. We had the heaters on and it was a bit too warm for him.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Well done...

    John presents his gospel in much the same way that a lawyer presents evidence in a kind of divine trial.
