EMERALD COAST (FBW)-Hershel Adams retired ..., 13 Sept 2013 [cached]
EMERALD COAST (FBW)-Hershel Adams retired July 31 as director of missions in the Emerald Coast Fellowship of Baptist Churches. However, that will not keep him from staying busy as a volunteer in his favorite associational ministry-the Crossroads Center Medical Clinic which the Emerald Coast association instituted under his leadership.
A few years after Adams took the helm of the Emerald Coast Fellowship-Choctaw Baptist Association in 1999-the Florida Baptist Mobile Dental Clinic made a visit to Okaloosa County. Its visit revealed needs among the residents that Adams had not seen before.
Adams serves on its board of directors. More than 1,400 Okaloosa and Walton County residents receive care at the clinic which annually donates around $1.2 million in medical services. With the leadership of two paid staff, 35 medical volunteers and 35 other volunteers, the clinic has filled the gap in health care in the county.
"I have seen God do miracles there-people who would have died in days who were helped," he said.
The clinic's Care Team talks and prays with every patient-a time that some patients say is "the most important time of their visit," Adams said. The Care Team ministers to those "almost totally unchurched."
"These people are the reason we do everything else," he said.
Adams will continue to serve on the clinic's board of directors and will manage the clinic's blog and its publicity and promotion.
"My job is to get the word out and the donations in," he said.
Adams told of the clinic's next venture with almost breathless excitement.
Adams estimated 250-275 area homes have been re-roofed by World Changers in that time. In addition, Emerald Coast mission volunteers have travelled to West Virginia several times since 2001 to minister with churches there.
Emerald Coast Fellowship churches are "small in number, but large in attendance," according to Adams.
Adams says his many years as pastor and minister of education prepared him to help churches that find themselves in crises. Professional evaluations through the years have called this one of the strongest aspects of his ministry.
"Working with pastoral staff in crises is a great privilege. When there are problems in the church you can either stay and deal with it or run away from it," he said.
Adams has handed over DOM responsibilities to Roy Saint, former associate team strategist in the Church Leadership Development Group of the Florida Baptist Convention.
