Because we are a teaching church, we have a large group of part-time and full-time people who help make life happen at Granite Springs. One of the joys of being at Granite Springs is having so many different and unique voices who speak into our shared lives together.
Rev. Dr. Kevin Adams, Senior Pastor
Kevin is the founding and senior pastor of Granite Springs Church. He loves conversation with people in all stages of their spiritual journey, mentoring young leaders, and praying the psalms. He also loves preaching, receiving his D.Min. under the direction of Haddon Robinson, a much loved and highly respected prince of preachers.
Through his leadership Granite Springs has helped launch ten church plants in the Sacramento area and beyond and received numerous grants. He has taught at William Jessup University and Calvin Theological Seminary and authored The Book That Understands You (2009) and 150: Finding Your Story in the Psalms (2011), various blog posts, and a forthcoming book on baptism and Christian mission. He is the Director of Formation at the Newbigin House of Studies in San Francisco.
In his free time he enjoys hiking in the Sierra, bicycling in South Placer, and reading novels and historical biography. You can find some of his recent blog posts on Reformed Worship.
Rev. Kyu Hahn, Associate Pastor of Pastoral Care and Community Engagement
Kyu enjoys learning, sharing stories, and preaching. He also enjoys playing and praying with the youth and helping them to flourish.
During the weekends or on vacation, Kyu loves to explore new places, take photos, and eat delicious food. He is an avid fan of the NBA and movies.
Matt Timms, Associate Pastor of Spiritual Formation & Administration
Matt enjoys planning worship services that form us into people who are prepared to follow Jesus through the rest of the week.
He enjoys reading and writing theology, watching all kinds of television and podcasts. Definitely podcasts. He also irregularly maintains a blog.
Madi Trivits, Director of Youth
Madi became a Christian in high school thanks to the boldness of a friend who invited her to youth group, a mentor who answered all her silly questions about the Bible and an invitation into a community that was genuinely seeking to live like Jesus. Since she was 16, she hoped that one day she could build a community like this again, and serve as a mentor to young people. This is what led her to the role of Youth Director at Granite Springs. Originally from Roseville, CA, Madi studied Bible/Theology and Sociology at Wheaton College (IL) and then completed her Master’s of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey. She is now so excited to be back on the west coast and working at Granite Springs, where she hopes that the youth group can continue to be a place of deep friendships, authentic encounters with Christ and an abundance of grace.
When she’s not at church, you’ll most likely find Madi out on a run, eating ice cream with her family or drinking coffee with a friend.
Aaron Antoon, Director of Music and Technical Arts
Aaron is grateful to be making and leading music for and with God’s people on a weekly basis. Is there a better job?
You’ll also find him happy while suffering a grueling mountain bike climb or while being kissed on the cheek by one of his kids.
Amy Langle, Office Manager
Amy is grateful for the opportunity to experience the grace-filled nature of Granite Springs Church. In addition to loving being a wife and mother Amy enjoys music, weekend getaways and spending time with her large extended family.
Marrissa Sork, Director of Children's Ministry
Marrissa enjoys teaching God’s precious children the Gospel through love and grace. She enjoys implementing and creating engaging activities as children learn more about the Word of God and how much God loves them each week. Marrissa also loves spending time with family and friends.
Grant Sork, Intern for Youth Ministry
Grant is grateful to be a part of the Granite Springs Youth leadership and loves developing close relationships with the junior and senior high. He is passionate about teaching and implementing God’s word and showing people the kindness and love of Christ.
Grant also loves superheroes, (most of all Spider-Man) watching movies, amd spending quality time with friends and family.
