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 collegiate minister at First Baptist Church Valdosta, member of Valdosta Rotary, Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce, 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 it all. 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

There have been periods where I have RUN from writing and the life of the mind, but I’m always brought back.

I write here, a weekly column in the business section of our local paper, and fiction for a local writing group.

More About Me

I love music that is honest and relatable, and beautiful, which tends to be either (Good) 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.
