Meet Adam Pursel

Teaching Pastor, Mount Vernon Campus

Adam was born and raised in Mount Vernon and came to know Christ in his early 20’s. Adam earned a mathematics degree from Ashland University and then began to pursue a Ph. D. in mathematics at Miami University. It was there that God saved Adam. Adam taught high school math for the next five years while also coaching football and basketball.
Adam married his amazing wife Molly in July of 2007. Adam and Molly have four pretty cool kids – Ethan (8), Ella (7), Annie (3) and Owen (1) – whose hobbies include making lots of noise and not cleaning up after themselves ;-). Adam enjoys hanging out with his family and friends, just about any sport, and reading. Adam has served on staff at Lifepoint since 2005, and is currently the Teaching Pastor at Lifepoint’s Mount Vernon campus, which he helped to launch in February of 2013. He has earned his M.A. in Theological Studies from Liberty University.
