Several years ago, when I decided to start attending First United Methodist, David Adams was our associate pastor. I already knew David from things I’d covered for the newspaper and liked him. In fact, I chose a Sunday School class because he was the teacher.
Two weeks — two weeks! — after I started at FUMC, we found out David was being transferred.
Anyway, after serving in Monterey and Lynchburg, David became the general secretary of the General Commission on United Methodist Men. In that role, he’s the point person for men’s ministries in United Methodist churches around the world.
David was kind enough to come and speak for our men’s breakfast this morning at FUMC, and he gave a fantastic, highly-motivational talk, which touched on evangelism, mentoring, Scouting, and the importance of men in the life of the church.
