Lead Article - Nineveh, Adam Demetros Temporary Supply Pastor



Adam D.jpgFor the past several months, Nineveh Presbyterian Church has had the pleasure of having Pastor Adam M. Demetros serve our congregation while the Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) has worked diligently to prepare the church to call its next pastor. Pastor Adam comes to us from Princeton Theological Seminary where he earned his Master of Divinity degree and felt called to congregational ministry. Prior to his theological studies, Pastor Adam earned a Master of Public Administration degree with a focus on nonprofit religious organizations which he says “beautifully supplements an MDiv and better prepares a person for ministry”.

Having lived in Vestal for many years, Pastor Adam is a native to the Southern Tier and is pleased to have been called back home. Prior to serving Nineveh Presbyterian Church, Pastor Adam provided pulpit supply for churches throughout our presbytery and has enjoyed being involved in the life and work of the churches in our area. Adam has a passion for ministry and thirst for knowledge that keeps his nose firmly planted in theological literature. When he is not studying or writing, Adam enjoys traveling and spending time with his newlywed wife, Amanda, who is a Science and Math teacher at All Saints Catholic School in Endicott.

Our Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) is moving along nicely. The Pastor Information Form (PIF) was submitted and approved by the Committee on Ministry (COM) at the beginning of August. As soon as the PIF was accepted, it became ‘live’ and was placed online for all prospective pastors looking for a full-time position to view. In the coming months, interested candidates will be interviewed, references will be contacted, and hopefully before long, NPC will have a new full-time pastor. Until that time, we are very happy and fortunate to have Pastor Adam Demetros with us.
