Rev. Robert Adair
(B.Div Hons, HE Cert Applied Theology)
Born and raised in Ballymena, Co.Antrim, Northern Ireland, I came to faith through the outreach of my local church - Hillside Community Church, who had an outreach team of Amercian missionaries visiting my local Housing Scheme.
It was through these missionaries under the direction of the Rev. Steve Burton, that I was given a lifetime opportunity to take part in an exchange programme to the USA. While working as part of the team in USA, I felt the call of God to undertake full time Christian Ministry, and in obedience to that call, I persued academic study
I attended Ballyloughan Church, were I grew in my Christian walk, serving in the youth ministries of the church.
From 2006-2009 I attended Belfast Bible College, Dunmurry. After some time away from studies I returned in 2012 to the Irish Bible Institue, Dublin where I completed a H.E Cert in Applied Theology (University of Wales) in Sept 2013. I then transfered to the Scottish Baptist College, where I completed my studies to attain a BDiv(Hons) in Theology and Pastoral Studies (University of The West of Scotland).
I met my beautiful wife, Gemma in July 2013, and we were married in July 2015 We have our daughter, Macie (3) and our son Harrison (2)
I previously served at Coastline Community Church, Pittenweem, from September 2013 until May 2016 where I was a Youth Worker, and in October 2016, Alness Baptist Church congregation extend a call to me to become the 4th Pastor in the fellowship's history.
