Senior Pastor


Adam is happily married to his wife Jessica, and they have two wonderful little girls named Juliette and Charlotte.

Adam is the full-time Pastor of Village Church. He is also the Chairman of the Board of the South African Theological Seminary. He has a degree in Law and Economics from the University of Cape Town, and an Honours degree in Theology from the South African Theological Seminary. Before going into full-time ministry, Adam owned an IT company in South Africa, taught at a school and coached and reffed volleyball in New Zealand, and worked in a private game reserve in Zimbabwe. Adam’s passions are intricately linked with the life of the local church family and it’s members. Together with running a busy church office, Adam enjoys preaching, teaching, and counselling. He has a passion for helping strengthen and restore marriages. His greatest joy though is preaching about Jesus.

Jess is a podiatrist and, after running her own podiatry practice in Bryanston for several years, she opened and now runs Concourse Medical & Dental Centre in Lonehill, from where she also runs her podiatry practice.

In their spare time, they enjoy hospitality, movies, sport, reading, a good TV series and most of all, playing with their daughters. Adam also has a particular passion for volleyball.

Together, Adam and Jess have led and planted several fellowship groups in the church. Jess leads one of the worship teams at Village. Adam has been a pastor at the Village Church since 2007, and along with preaching, has overseen many of the ministry areas in the church before becoming the Senior Pastor, including fellowship groups, worship, counselling, children’s church, youth, and young adults, among others. Adam stepped into the role of serving as the Senior Pastoral Elder of Village Church in January 2015.
