Pastor Adam's Bio
Welcome to Vogel Center! I am delighted that you are taking the time to learn more about our wonderful church family. I hope that you experience Vogel Center to be a welcoming and friendly place.
My passion is to help people connect God’s word with their daily lives in such a way that they experience God’s grace and blessing. The heart of the Bible is the good news of how ordinary, every day folks can be made new through Jesus and his cross.
We live out these things through being a church family where everyone belongs, everyone is welcome, everyone encourages each other, and everyone prays for each other. This is how we strive to love all our neighbors in the same way we love ourselves. We value partnership and collaboration wherever these values line up with other churches and organizations in our greater community. We strive to hold on the best or our past and our traditions while always moving forward into the new things that God has for us.
That is my heartbeat and passion as I strive to live out God’s calling for life and ministry.
In my personal life, I grew up in northeast Massachusetts enjoying small town life with little league and boy scouts. My first job was picking strawberries, beans and corn for the local farm.
My parents were immigrants from Australia and my father was a minister in the Anglican tradition.
I have been married to my beautiful and wonderful wife, Amanda, since 1994. We have five adult children.
My interests and hobbies include foster care and adoption, spending time with Amanda and our family, and enjoying God’s creation, and the outdoors.
