Meet our Team

Here at RiverTown Church we have a wonderful team of leaders who work to lead us to fulfill our  vision of making disciples throughout our town and world. Below you will be introduced to our team through a short biography. 

Please feel free to contact any of our leaders if you have specific questions about the ministries they lead.

  • Dan Adams 

    Lead Pastor

    Dan Adams is the founding and Lead Pastor of RiverTown Church. Born and raised in Jacksonville, he attended college at Samford University in Birmingham, AL. He married his college sweetheart Amber in 1995. Dan and Amber have two sons and live in Jacksonville’s Southside.


    The teaching style at RiverTown reflects Dan’s commitment to communicating God’s word expositionally with a gospel-driven and relevant focus. Believing that worship should be refreshing and relevant, his teaching strives to overcome the failure and boredom of empty religion by leading people to experience a relationship with Jesus. A relationship with Jesus is all about grace, and grace is what permeates the teaching, worship and culture at RiverTown. The stories of God’s grace in the lives of the people at RiverTown are simply beautiful. 


    Dan is an alum of Samford University (B.S. in History, 1995), Beeson Divinity School (Master of Divinity, 1998), and Liberty University (M.B.A., 2009). He is also beginning his Doctor of Ministry degree at Reformed Theological Seminary. He is a Sigma Chi, joining this fraternity in his college days at Samford.


    Dan loves hanging with his wife and boys. He enjoys golf, tennis, softball, basketball, and working out in his free time. Dan loves to eat seafood, sushi, wings, oreos, and of course barbecue (like all good Southern boys). The beach and Amelia Island are favorites for getting away with the family. 


    You can mail Dan dan@rivertown.com with any questions you may have about RiverTown. You can also catch up with him on Twitter, Instagram or on Facebook.
