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