Joe P. McAdams began ministering as the Senior Pastor at Dive CC on April 1, 2016. Joe graduated from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2008 and has been in pastoral ministry since 1999. He and His wife Jodi have 5 children- Josiah, Jeremiah, Julianna, Jared and Judah.
Pastor Joe drinks lots of Dr. Pepper, likes to run when the weather is warm, and enjoys reading non-fiction. Jodi drinks lots of designer coffee, enjoys music, art, sewing, and cooking, but spends the majority of her time chasing Judah and homeschooling the other four children.
The McAdams family may often be found playing board games, watching a movie, or going out for ice cream. Spending time together on their annual family vacation is always a highlight. They are very blessed that God has led them to Dive and they're enjoying integrating with the congregation inside and outside the walls of the church building.
Pastor Joe's heart is to unify and inspire people at Dive toward discipleship. Our glorious mission as Christ-Followers is to make and grow other Christ-Followers. As we grow in our love for God. We will grow in our love for each other and be strengthened to take that same love to the lost.
Pastor Joe looks forward to knowing you and your family through interaction on Sundays, Wednesday evening, at the coffee shop or in his home.
My wife and I have been at Dive now since Nov of 2012. We are excited to see what the Lord has for us as we serve Bedford area Jr Highers and High Schoolers! God has called us to love Him, love on those around us and to use His message of love and restoration to speak in to students and their families lives. Nicole (my better half!) and I have been married since July 10, 2010 and currently are a family of six; Matt, Nicole, Declan, Denver, Oaklyn and Shiloh our Goldendoodle. I graduated from Henderson County High School in 2003 and from Oakland City University in 2007 with a Bachelors degree in Religious Studies . I enjoy playing and watching just about any sport; basketball, volleyball, golf and etc. Our Ministry Goal: To see God’s will be done in students lives as they grow spiritual deeper in love with the Lord, which will result in a life surrendered to God.

I grew up here at Dive Christian Church. My parents starting bringing me at the age of 8 and I learned of my need for a Savior and quickly accepted Jesus at the age of 9. My husband, Harry, and I were married here in 1992. My husband and I have served as Worship Leaders since 1999. I began working in Children’s Ministry in 2009 and then added the role of church Secretary in 2012. I get so excited when teaching the kids about Jesus. I love to bring the Bible to life for the kids. I love to see their eyes light up in amazement when they “get” what Jesus did for us. I have many favorite bible verses, but the one that I hold on to through all of lifes trials is Romans 8:28. We are a family of five: Harry, Tammy, Alyssa (1999), Gabe (2000), and Ashlyn (2004). Some of the fun things I enjoy are: going to the movies - especially Faith Based movies (War Room, Facing the Giants, Fire Proof, Courageous, etc), music, christian concerts, amusement parks (I LOVE roller coasters), reading, watching my kids in their activities, spending time with my family and friends, etc... I thank God everyday for the blessings He has given me... my family... my church... my Jesus.
