    Adam has been the facility manager at St. David's since 2009. He's a single dad with 4 amazing children: Madison and Owen, Brighto, and Corbin. His kids are his life and working at St. David's has allowed him the ability to work flexible hours so he can be there for his kids. He thanks St. David's for the continued opportunity to take care of the church. It's hard to believe that this upcoming year will be my 10th year at St. David's!
