He holds degrees from the University of Illinois, National College of Chiropractic, and Fuller Theological Seminary.

Adrian is currently a student in the Doctor of Ministry program at Columbia Theological Seminary where he is focusing on the application of Benedictine Spirituality within a Reformed Congregation for Spiritual Renewal.  Adrian has a heart for cross-cultural ministry and mission which has taken him to Cyprus, Ukraine, Romania, South Africa, and Kenya.  In the summer of 2017, he was asked to serve in the Pastor-in-Residence program at Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center at Lake Tahoe.  He has led retreats and workshops on spiritual renewal.  He enjoys spending time with his wife, Janel, and their children David and Claira.  He finds inspiration in the beauty of God’s creation, and he enjoys walking, hiking, music, travel, discovering new places, learning, reading, and rich conversations with good friends.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
