Memorial Baptist Church is pleased to welcome Rev. Adam Hedge and his family!

After serving four years as the Assistant Pastor of Chambersburg Baptist Church in Chambersburg, PA, Pastor Hedge was selected to be the Senior Pastor at Memorial. He preached his first official sermon at Memorial on Sunday, July 15, 2018. He has a passion for God’s Word, a desire to serve God’s people, and is committed to proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ. He joins the congregation at Memorial Baptist Church with his wife, Megan, and their five children: Abigail, Evan, Noah, Elizabeth, and Sarah.

Pastor Hedge is excited to join Memorial Baptist as they continue to reach out to the community around them. Pastor Hedge believes Christians are called to do two things:  love God with everything you have, and love your neighbor as yourself. He says, “It is both the duty and privilege of every believer to share the love of Christ with those around them. But this love cannot be merely lip-service, we cannot just say ‘we love you,’ or even ‘God loves you.’ We have to demonstrate it in our actions. I think Memorial has done a great job of reaching out the Gettysburg area and I am looking forward to joining in that great work.”

Pastor Hedge holds a Certificate in Clinical Laboratory Sciences from George Washington University in Washington, DC; a Bachelor of Science in Counseling Psychology from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA; and a Master of Divinity in Pastoral Ministry from Evangelical Theological Seminary in Myerstown, PA. Pastor Hedge also serves as a First Lieutenant in the US Army Reserves.
