The Reverend Adam Ogg
Associate Pastor for Youth Ministry
Adam grew up in Ojai, a small town in Southern California, not far from the beach. He does indeed know how to surf but is quite terrible at it. He grew up going to Ojai Presbyterian Church, and became clearly aware of how Protestant he was by attending a Catholic institution for his years in high school.
Being challenged to think about his faith during these formative years, this led him to attend Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington where he studied Theology. After several different experiences in youth ministry, Adam felt the call and inspiration to go into ministry. He went on to attend Princeton Theological Seminary. While there he fell in love with reading and learning while figuring out his calling, in both an urban ministry setting, as well as a stint as an interim youth director.
After graduating, he worked in a seminary-owned garden and as an assistant cheese-maker at a dairy until he moved to serve as the intern at Siesta Key Chapel, a Presbyterian church in Sarasota, Florida. After a year he accepted the call and moved to Burke. Adam is excited and grateful to take part in the ministry of Burke Presbyterian Church!
Outside of BPC, Adam enjoys podcasts and audiobooks, music, running, or some combination thereof. He can be found hanging out in coffee shops with a good book, seeing live music, or throwing a Frisbee in the park.
