Adam graduated (barely!) from Northern Theological Seminary in Chicago, IL in 2006, earning a Masters of Divinity and from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2003. He has served as a youth pastor in Park Ridge, IL and an interim youth pastor in First Baptist Church in Hamilton, OH. Most recently, he served as the Lead Pastor of KingsWay Church in Mason/Maineville Ohio for 5 years. He strives to communicate that the greatest privileges of life are to be called God’s own, and to receive the invitation to join God where he’s working and witness lives changed. He loves golfing, water skiing, sledding, snow skiing, nearly anything adventurous, and really enjoys writing about himself in third person. He also loves watching the Michigan Wolverines beating the tar out of Ohio State, but that hasn’t happened in a while. He and his wife Tonya have been married since 2004 and have three children, Aiden, Aubrey, and Kylie.
Karen considers her job a great privilege and ministry. She enjoys being part of the life of the church and serving God alongside the members and friends. She enjoys reading, going to the beach and traveling to North Carolina. She and her husband, Steve, are lifelong residents of Battle Creek. They have two married sons and four grandchildren. They enjoy family activities and fun with friends.
