Bio/Description

Steve and Linda first got involved with Communitas in 1991, volunteering as short-term team coordinators. By January of 1993, Steve had made the transition into a full-time role. Steve served as Executive VP until 2007, when he jumped at the chance to oversee Communitas' expansion into Latin America.

A few of Steve's favorite things in ministry:

  • helping leaders discover innovative ways to live out their faith in new contexts
  • building strategic partnering relationships
  • dreaming and exploring with others about how we can be all that God intends for us to be in extending His kingdom in all its fullness

Steve's book, Sacred Intersections: Enjoying and enhancing the stories around us, describes how paying better attention to the stories of the people we encounter each day can enliven our experience of God, add meaning to our lives, and make a difference in the world.

Prior to joining Communitas, Steve earned a doctorate in Music Education at the University of Southern California. He began his career as a public school music teacher and later became a university professor, training teachers. Linda has been a Sales Director with Mary Kay Cosmetics for over 20 years and was a high school Spanish teacher prior to that. Their daughters, Claire and Maddie, are both in college. All of the Adams' love to ski, and all, in one way or another, enjoy the performing arts.
