"The Preacher sought
to find delightful words
and to write
words of truth
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 Davis 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 looking forward to being a part of Leadership Lowndes with the class of 2019.
In 2015 I was diagnosed with Lyme disease, after 2 years of bad health. I spent those 2 years largely confined to my parents home, reading and studying, trying to make sense of my suffering. 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.
I love music that is honest and relatable, and beautiful, which tends to be either Country or Classical. Brett Eldredge is my boy. My wife loves Rom-Coms, so now I do too, but I prefer either war movies or end-of-the-world sci-fi. I am 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 have two motorcycles, and two bicycles. I used to race bicycles but now I am blessed just to be able to ride. But in the past few months I’ve seen a lot of improvement, so I’m calling this my #comeback.
The Up & Comers Show is a podcast for millennials who care, a show with my pal Thane Ringler, California's resident expert on professional golf. He's a friend of mine from college who went pro but who kept up with me in my illness and difficult time at home. Recently I haven’t been contributing much, but, you know, priorities.
Every now and then I send out a hand-made newsletter of the best links (articles, sermons, lectures, books, etc.) I've found that I want to share with my friends. It's over two years old now, and it's still growing in readership and support. (My Nana loves these things. Maybe I should get her to do a testimonial...)
