Hershel Adams, Lead Pastor
Pastor Hershel shares messages from God's word that are very insightful, practical and encouraging. You can sense his love and passion for people as he opens his heart every week to share God's word with us. He has a very dynamic and down to earth personality that motivates people to discover their own uniqueness and then to discover how God wants them to minister in this world. Pastor Hershel's hearts desire is to see every person experience fulfillment in life by understanding, accepting and achieving his or her God-given purpose.
Pastor Hershel is the founding and senior pastor of Sonlight Church. He was born in Rossville, Georgia, where he grew up and met his wife, Deena. They have been married since 1981 and have three children, daughters Sheleena and Jenna, and son Jeremy, as well as four beautiful grandchildren. He graduated from Liberty University with a Masters of Divinity and Florida Tech with his M.B.A.
Deena's God-given purpose is to be a help-mate to her husband Hershel and help him be successful in what God has called him to do. She feels the best way to accomplish that purpose is by working alongside him in the daily ministry of the church as the ministry assistant to our staff.
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.
