Rev. Adam Baker
Adam has served as the Associate Pastor at Wesley Memorial since 2014, where he loves preaching, teaching, and sharing the love of Christ with others. His primary pastoral focus is upon pastoral counseling, care, and visitation, ministries within which he is grateful to work alongside Wesley Memorial’s very active Stephen Ministry and home visitation teams. Should you, your family, or someone you know have need of pastoral care, prayer, or a listening ear, Adam would love to connect with you.
Prior to becoming a United Methodist pastor, Adam lived in a variety of different countries, enjoyed working as a barista and as a creative co-director of a successful graphic design company, served as a therapist for almost ten years in Ohio with at-risk children, adolescents, and families, and earned a couple of graduate degrees in clinical pastoral counseling and theological studies. He loves building friendships, drawing, listening to music, reading about monks, and joining Jenn, his wife, in parenting their “Baker tribe” of four children: Eleanor, Adelaide, Isla, and Duncan.
Because I’ve experienced God’s love and generosity at Wesley Memorial, I’m joyful about the opportunity to share that same love and generosity, not only within these walls, but also within the community of Wilmington and beyond.
After moving to Wilmington, we wanted a church that had a good worship service, friendly members, and a strong youth program for both of our children… after visiting Wesley, our kids said, ‘This is it. This is the church for us. We don’t need to go anywhere else." We knew it was going to be our new church home.
We’ve spent more than twenty years of marriage searching for the right church home – we’ve found it at Wesley Memorial. The people are genuinely warm, and they will meet you wherever you are on your faith journey.
