Adam English – Interim Pastor
You should probably know up front that I’m a Texan. Born in Austin, I grew up in a Christian home with an older sister and younger brother and a big fluffy dog, Scuppers. I attended Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, where I studied Theology and served my first church as a youth and children’s minister. The church, Lake Fort Phantom Baptist, met in a tiny cinderblock building and paid me just enough to buy gas there and back.
As my faith and calling grew, I worked toward the teaching profession by earning the M.A. in Theology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth and the Ph.D. from Baylor University in Waco.
I began to teach Theology and Philosophy at Campbell University in the fall of 2003. Currently I serve as the Chair of the Department – which was called “Religion and Philosophy” back in the day when Andy attended but has since been renamed “Christian Studies.”
I have served as interim pastor in three different churches: Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, Willow Springs, North Carolina, Westfield Baptist Church, Dunn, and Rowan Baptist Church, Clinton. When I’m not otherwise occupied, I stay active at Memorial Baptist Church, Buies Creek, as a deacon, children’s Sunday School teacher, landscaper, kitchen worker, etc.
My lovely wife of over twenty years, Charissa, works at Harnett Central Middle School. Our teenage daughter, Cassidy, is recognizable by her blue hair and fantastic artwork. Our dog, Jack the Australian terrier, is recognizable by his wagging tail.
I was born and raised in a tiny town in Eastern North Carolina, where BBQ is big and Friday Night Football is even bigger. I received my undergraduate degree in religion from Campbell University and I am currently back at Campbell working on a Masters of Divinity.
Between college and graduate school I packed a 45 pound backpack and traveled to 11 countries on a mission trip called The World Race. Through this experience the Lord taught me the importance of community within the church, hearing people’s stories and sharing in their celebrations and desert seasons. I have a heart for children’s ministry and a huge love of missions.
Michael Sizemore- Pastoral Intern
I have been in North Carolina my whole life, living in Fuquay-Varina for the large majority of the time. I attended UNC Charlotte where I got a degree in Psychology and I am now a student at Campbell University Divinity School. In my free time, you can find me hammocking, hanging out with friends, watching soccer, playing cards, board games, nintendo switch, and various sports.
Through my various experiences in ministry, I have come to value community and discipleship more than anything. Life is messy, but there is something sacred about journeying alongside others in it. I believe Christ calls us to do that, to welcome all, and to create space for Kingdom work.
