Faith Journey: Adam

Adam was born into a Christian home and accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of six. The very first thing he remembers was wanting to be a pastor. He did not realize it then but God would, in fact, bring that calling back later in life. After a difficult high school career, God called him to Olivet Nazarene University, where he received his second call to ministry. It was there he studied to become a pastor prior to accepting a position at MPNAZARENE.

Faith Journey: Emily

Hobbies: Adam loves  running, drumming, reading, and playing video games.  Emily loves  photography, hiking, and cooking.
