Leadership Team

Pastor Tim came to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ as a teen attending MSBC. Under the teaching and preaching of Dr. John Adams, Tim felt the calling of God to preach and dedicated his life to Christ soon thereafter. His parents have been faithful members of MSBC for over 25 years and have been instrumental in founding Faithway Fellowship Baptist Church. Tim was born and raised in the East Mountain area and worked for several years as a contractor before surrendering his life for full- time ministry during a missions conference at MSBC in 2006. Tim attended West Coast Baptist College the following year and earned a Bachelors degree in 2011.
The Lord blessed Tim to be able to serve as an associate Pastor and interim Pastor for several years in southern California.  He then served as associate Pastor and Co-pastor at New Testament Baptist Church of Truth or Consequences for the last six years. Tim has been married to his college sweetheart, Tina, since 2010 and they have been blessed with four beautiful daughters.
Tim has a burden to reach the people of the East Mountain area with the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is a student of the Word of God with a passion to teach others the Word of God.  His prayer is that Faithway Fellowship Baptist Church will be a lighthouse to the East Mountain area and the surrounding communities.
Originally from southern Ohio, the Lord has seen fit to use Pastor Adams in either planting churches or rebuilding them. Since being called to preach in 1972 at the age of 19, he has started one church in upstate New York and been used to pastor four other churches in the USA and one in Germany. In each case the churches had fallen drastically in attendance and offerings before calling him as pastor. The Lord has used Pastor Adams in rebuilding each work spiritually, numerically, and financially, especially in the area of missions. (The church in NY is now 38 years old and many of the members that are still there today were saved and baptized under Pastor Adams’ ministry.)

Though his father was unsaved, his mother was saved and faithfully brought up her children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. His father was a crane operator at the steel mill, and for most of John’s life, his mother was a homemaker. She went to work when John was a teenager, necessitated by a heart attack of John’s father.

John has been married to his high school sweetheart, Theresa, for over 47 years and they have five children, and fourteen grandchildren. All the children are married, and all are faithfully serving the Lord in Baptist churches.

 He has several earned degrees, including three Masters’ and two Doctorates, has studied French, Latin, Greek and German, but believes the best education he received was studying alone with the King James Bible, a notebook, and a Strong’s Concordance. He has a love for pastors and churches, and a passionate heart for missions.

Graceway Christian Academy

A ministry of Mountain Springs,Graceway Christian Academy is now six years old.  GCA is occupying the facilities where Temple Baptist Academy was previously located. Dr. John Adams, pastor of Mountain Springs, serves as the superintendent of GCA. 

When asked what sets Graceway apart from other Christian schools in the area, Dr. Adams replied, “We hold to the historic doctrines of the Word of God, while incorporating an excellent program of studies as a foundation for quality education.  Such a combination aids in developing a Scriptural worldview for our students.  We work with the students, in conjunction with the parents, grandparents, or guardians, to develop programs to assist our students’ learning needs.  We want to prepare them for now, and for eternity.” He added, “We are one of the few Christian schools that offer tuition that is designed to be affordable for families.”
