Vernell Adams

Youth/Young Adult Pastor

For thirteen wonderful years I have been blessed to do life with my wonderful bride Aisha Adams. God has blessed us with four wonderful children, Javier, Zier, Zariah, and Zion. My family and I have recently relocated to the area of Ceres, California to pursue the call of God, but I am originally from Pensacola, Florida. I was blessed to plant my feet in the state of Virginia via the military, where I met Aisha. After getting out, I served 14 plus years as a police officer in the state of Virginia.

My family and I are excited about having the pleasure of becoming a part of the Grace Community Christian Church family. Prior to coming to Grace Community Christian Church, I served at Freedom Life Church in Hampton, Virginia as one of the Elders. I have also served as Associate Pastor of outreach, youth leader and in the young adult’s ministry bi-vocationally for a number of years. I count it as an honor and a privilege to be able to serve alongside such wonderful people. It is so amazing seeing the joy and love of our Savior expressed through such authentic men and woman of God. We were seeking God on his leading for this next season of our life, and God blessed us abundantly! I look forward to serving and supporting the vision of Grace Community Christian Church for years to come!

Random Fact: I consider myself a romantic; I love to write my wife poetry. I also love to read, draw, and sing as well in my leisure time. I am the adventurous type, so I love doing daring things like zip lining, roller coasters, and any other daring rides at amusement parks, etc. I also love the game of football; I am a diehard Miami Dolphins fan!
