We welcome to our Church during the month of July, the Rev. Dr. Paul R. Adkins!
Rev. Adkins is a graduate of Alderson Broaddus College where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree. Upon graduating from college he was accepted at Andover Newton Theological School where he received the Bachelor of Divinity degree. Following three more years of study he was awarded the Doctor of Ministry degree. His life-long interest in the study of Scripture took him to Harvard Divinity School where a class in biblical archaeology led him to spend a month as a student archaeologist in Gezer, Israel. He later organized and led two tours to the Holy Land. For twenty-five years he was an adjunct professor at Andover Newton where he taught classes in church administration as well as assisting the homiletics professor in the preaching class. He was senior pastor of the First Congregational Church of Shrewsbury, MA for twenty-seven years before retiring in 2010. In retirement he was called as part-time pastor of the Congregational Church of South Dennis, a position he held for just over eight years. Since completing his pastorate in Dennis he has enjoyed being the supply pastor at various churches. Paul and his wife Debby have two children and four grandchildren.
