Plymouth Avenue Staff

Adam Parks

Senior Minister

Adam began serving as the Senior Minister at Plymouth Avenue Christian Church in 2015.  He is from Florida and loves to see God transform lives!  Adam graduated from Florida Christian College with a B.A. in preaching and Bible. He is married to his beautiful wife Karissa whom he met in college.  He can’t imagine doing anything other than serving the Lord in the local church. He enjoys fishing and being outdoors in God’s creation.
He is challenged by the words of the Apostle Paul in Acts 20:24 “But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God” and strives to live them out in his life.

Billy Knieriem

Associate & Youth Minister

Billy joined PACC as the Student Minister in July 2009, after finishing his Bachelors degree at Johnson Bible College in Knoxville, Tennessee.  After spending 6 years in the Florida Army National Guard, Billy felt it was time to stop running from the Call he was hearing from God, and set off to Knoxville to pursue his degree in Youth Ministry.
He is originally from Staten Island, New York but has lived in 5 different states before making his home here in DeLand.  You can usually find him playing or watching sports when he isn’t teaching or harassing students.
Currently Billy also serves with the DeLand Area Youth Outreach (DAYO) organization, and as a Chaplain for the DeLand High School JV and the DeLand PopWarner Bulldogs Football teams; and as a volunteer with the DeLand High FCA organization.

Plymouth Avenue Christian Church | DeLand, FL

Plymouth Avenue Christian Church was founded on March 25, 1962 after several families felt the need for an independent Christian Church in the DeLand area. Mr. Hubert Jacobs offered a five acre plot of land across the street from DeLand High School on the corners of Plymouth and Hill Avenues. We are a non-denominational fellowship of Christians, free from all denominational ties, bound together by our absolute belief in the precious Word of God and our sincere desire for the unity of all the followers of Jesus Christ. We hope to see you Sunday!
