About Adam
  • Education: I completed my BA in Religious Studies at Canadian University College (Lacombe, AB) in 2002. I completed my Masters of Divinity degree at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University (Berrien Springs, MI) in 2007.
  • Experience: I arrived at my current district in September of 2007, where I serve as the pastor of two congregations. Prior to this I had the privilege of pastoring the Edmonton South Seventh-day Adventist Church from 2002 until 2005, during which time I served as the associate pastor (2002-2003) and the acting senior pastor (2003-2005).
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: It is my desire to use my sermons to challenge people in their study of Scripture - to look past the common things we think and assumptions when we read familiar passages, and find deeper truths God wants for us. I hope you’re challenged to look at God’s Word more carefully, and see greater truths as a result.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: (I’ll have to think about that; there have been a couple of good ones).
  • Family: I have the privilege of being married to my wife, Angela, since 1999, and together we raise two wonderful children.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: I think they enjoy them; they haven’t heard me preach a lot (they live in another town). But they’ve said they enjoyed the times they have heard me preach.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: To be honest, with two children to keep occupied and quiet during church, my wife tells me she really doesn’t get to follow my sermons much. She does say, however, that when she is able to tune in, they usually sound good and make sense.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Any sermon that doesn’t end with an appeal that involves some sort of decision or call to action, is only a lecture. True preaching should always result in those listening making some sort of decision to change.
  • Books that have had an impact: The Desire of Ages, by Ellen G. White; The Great Controversy, by Ellen G. White; Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, by Ellen G. White; Mere Christianity, by C.S. Lewis; The Screwtape Letters, by C.S. Lewis; In the Name of Jesus, by Henri Nouwen
  • Hobbies: I enjoy singing (solo or choral music) and drama.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: (Hmmm... gotta get back to you on that one too).
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I don’t usually use PowerPoint when I’m preaching, and when I do it’s usually only one or two slides. One time I had a single slide of a diagram of Herod’s Temple in Jerusalem, which was very important to the sermon. Twice I had to refer to it, and both times it failed to show on the screen. In each case, I didn’t realise it right away, and was referring to an image the congregation couldn’t see. After several failed attempts, the tech support person overrode my remote and changed it manually.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Awaiting Jesus’ call on Resurrection Morning [it’s what’s on my Grandpa’s; he shaped my early Christian experience]
