At the core of everything we do is the desire to be a church family that lives and loves like Jesus.

This is our heart

Northbrook Church is a family on a mission; a family committed to building relationships that lead people to Christ and his church.
We desire to be a part of a relational discipling movement through gathering in large and small groups, growing in our love for God and serving others, and going near and far with the good news of Christ’s love.




ADAM joined the Northbrook family in 2020 as the Lead Pastor. He and his wife, Leslie, married in 2004 and have five kids: Karis, Eli, Luke, Silas, and Zoe. While attending Union University in the early 2000s, Adam began his ministry as a student ministry intern here at Northbrook. Since then he completed his M.Div and Ph.D degrees preparing for ministry and has worked in several churches. His passion is for preaching the Gospel in a way that connects real people to real life-change. He is down-to-earth and ready for some good coffee and conversation anytime. Adam is an avid outdoorsman, pretty handy around a car engine, and at heart a family man. Come by and introduce yourself, his office door is always open.
