Adam Nelson


Adam has been on staff since 2013 and serves as the Director of Media and Worship Arts. He oversees the Tech Team, is a member of the Worship Team and regularly leads worship, and the Creative Director of Roughhewn People, a culture-shaping creative arts ministry. He grew up at South Park Church and returned after college with his wife, Kristin, when he felt called to attend Seminary in Chicago. Adam loves finding creative ways to rethink the Church’s role in society, whether from a tech stand-point to worship to the rhythms of our church and The Church, and much more. He also loves embracing new facets of God through people’s stories. Adam has two young daughters, Aubrey Erica and Riley Junia, who treat this church as an extension of their house, and a beautiful wife (and former staff member!), Kristin, who draws the best out of him. He loves his family, coffee, thrift stores, vintage guitar gear, camping, and mountains.
