The PNC (Pastor Nominating Committee) and the Congregation of Tabor Presbyterian Church are happy to announce that the Reverend Liz Hulme Adam is our new Pastor. Liz will begin her ministry with Tabor on February 12, 2018.
Please read below to learn a little bit about our next pastor!
Liz Hulme Adam is a Crozet resident and no stranger to Tabor. She is married to our own, Erdal Adam, a local optometrist. They have three children -- Hannah, 19, now at American University, Phoebe, 16, at the Virginia Institute of Autism, and Silas, 13, Henley Middle School. Additionally, Liz has served at Tabor a number of times as a pulpit supply pastor and worked with our youth in 2006 and 07.
Liz graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1997 and has served churches in NJ, PA and VA. She also served as chaplain first through the residency program at University of Virginia Medical Center and then at Westminster-Canterbury of the Blue Ridge. Before accepting the call to Tabor, she served Orange Presbyterian Church as interim minister for two and half years and has received glowing reviews on her work there preparing them for their next pastor. During that time she got involved in NEXT Church, (through the PCUSA) this year serving as a facilitator for a workshop on public policy and witness. Liz is highly respected in our Presbytery and is currently serving as the secretary for the Presbytery’s Public Policy Purpose Group.
When Liz is not reading and preparing for worship, she likes jogging, travel, NFL football, and arm wrestling Silas (until that time when she can no longer win). Liz also has a background in journalism.
Liz is excited about coming to Tabor and will bring a great deal of energy and enthusiasm to her role as our pastor.
