Adam is native to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He first met LCMS missionaries while participating in a short-term mission trip to Central Asia in the Summer of 2017. Through mutual conversation, he discovered that the missionary family had been praying for someone to come, while Adam had been praying to go. Having learned of an unfulfilled need among the small congregations of minority Christians, he decided to channel his gifts for music into a ministry. Throughout high school, Adam developed a passion for teaching music and telling people about Jesus. He served for five years as the organist at his church and was involved with the Ongoing Ambassadors for Christ (OAFC) since the age of thirteen. This kindled a desire to share the Good News of Jesus with everyone he meets—especially those who do not know, who have not yet heard the message of salvation.
Now Adam will be living as a student in Central Asia, studying music education for four years at an International University. He is having new opportunities to witness in the city, encourage new believers, and will have his breaks and summers free to continue teaching and volunteering in the Lutheran churches.
