My name is Adam Setser and as of 6/2/18 I am married to Faith Setser. She is everything to me.

My Work

Vocationally I am a Financial Advisor at The Kerrigan Group, but my background is in divinity. I graduated from The Masters University in Los Angeles with my BA in Biblical Languages, and am on temporary leave from my MA in Theology at SBTS. I am the minister of college at First Baptist Church Valdosta, and am part of Leadership Lowndes with the class of 2019.

My Health

In 2015 I was diagnosed with Lyme disease, after 4 years of increasingly bad health. I spent 2 of those years largely confined to my bed, and I took it very seriously, spending almost every waking hour reading and studying, trying to make sense of my trial. I am a Christian (read my manifesto here), and while my faith did waver in that darkness, God was faithful to bring me back to the light.

My Writing

Now, the Lord has restored my life and it is moving with some quickness. I’m often left behind, struggling to keep up with everything God is doing. I have RUN from writing and the life of the mind for so long now, just because I associate it with so much pain and because I don’t have energy to maintain my life in this world, much less that one.

However, marriage has taught me that the world is a better place when I communicate, when I get clear and free and share my thoughts. So in that vein, I’ve started writing again, and in that process have found healing. That writing is different though. Much different.

Any other writing I do, I’m seeking to publish it in print, either in the local paper, or something else.

More About Me

I love music that is honest and relatable, and beautiful, which tends to be either Country or the Classics or Classical. My wife loves Rom-Coms, so now I do too, but I prefer either war movies or dramas, especially historical stuff. I am also unironically a huge Tom Cruise fan—and Robin Williams and Russell Crowe. I play the piano and Faith sings, and sometimes we dance.

We bought a fixer upper in the heart of the city, built in 1940, with all its charm and quirks. We’ve done a lot of renovations ourselves, which is something I will probably write about. We have two motorcycles, and two bicycles. I used to race bicycles but now I am blessed just to be able to ride.
