Greetings! My name is Tim Adams and I’ve been the Pastor at Resurrection United Methodist Church since June of 2018. I was born and raised in San Antonio and graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1979. After high school I lived in places like Pensacola, Florida, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas-Ft Worth, Wichita, Kansas and Waco, Texas - getting an education and doing ministry in a variety of contexts. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Texas at Arlington and my Master of Divinity from TCU. Prior to my appointment to Resurrection I served two churches as the Senior Pastor, one as an Associate Pastor and two as a Youth Pastor. I’ve also founded two faith-based non-profits, been a caseworker with federal prisoners and a case manager with public housing residents. I also enjoy freelance writing and have had several dozen articles published in various newspapers, magazines and websites. But what I’m proudest of are my four kids - Elizabeth (24), Sam (23), Will (21) and Ellen (19).
I’m excited about what the future holds for Resurrection Church. We’re located just a block from East Central High School and are eager to embrace our community with the love of Christ in Word and Deed.
I invite you to join us for worship any Sunday at 11:00 am in our beautiful sanctuary and to plug into any of our outreach ministries, such as our monthly Food Serve, which takes place the third Wednesday of each month at 9:00 am in our church parking lot and impacts 100-110 families each month.
We’re also in the process of enhancing our Youth and Children’s Ministries, so if you have school-aged children bring them to Resurrection where we promise to always provide a safe and nurturing environment to facilitate your child’s spiritual growth.
As a United Methodist Church, we are part of the Wesleyan Tradition, started by our Founder, John Wesley, who famously said, “In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things, Charity (Love).”
We believe there is an uncompromising core to our faith, best summarized in the Apostle’s and Nicene Creeds, and it is that common faith that unifies the Church. But we also recognize that not everyone dots their i’s or crosses their t’s the same way in some lesser areas, so we celebrate the diversity that liberty gives us. And in everything we do, we strive to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ, to those inside and outside His Church.
I invite you to come and join us on this exciting journey of faith and fellowship at Resurrection United Methodist Church.
Rev. Tim Adams
