Adam & Nicole Kern
Adam accepted Christ as a freshman at West Chester University when other men of God stood up for Jesus and showed Him what a true relationship with Christ looked like. After growing by leaps and bounds in his faith through the ministry of Cru on campus he felt a clear call from the Lord to serve Him and lead others towards a relationship with Christ. He experienced the best gift God has ever given Him when he crossed paths with his now wife Nicole. They were married in 2013. Adam graduated from West Chester University with a Bachelor’s in Marketing. He then attended Calvary Chapel Bible College which really shaped him and helped deepen his love for God’s Word. After a few years serving as a Youth Pastor, Adam felt the Lord calling him to plant a church in the community where he grew up.
God has given him a desire to help people understand and love God’s Word, and create disciples that have a heart for people who don’t know Jesus personally. Adam served as a Church Planting Intern at Riverbend Community Church under Pastor Joe Velarde and Riverbend was the sending church that sent him out to plant in the Schnecksville/Orefield area. Along with other people that felt the Lord calling them to plant a church, The Vine Church was born and began meeting in Schnecksville in October 2016. Adam and his wife live in Macungie and enjoy family time, the Philadelphia 76ers, and Dorney Park!
