The Hoopers have found a home at Westside Baptist Church where Adam serves as the Instrumental Director and co-teacher for the Psalm 150 Connection Group. Their prayer was answered to be planted by “streams of living water”, a place for their family to thrive, connect and grow in God’s Word. Adam’s wife, Svetlana, is the perfect ministry partner for the orchestra, connecting with international and foreign speaking members, and hosting amazing fellowship events. Raffaela and Samuel participate in the active children’s ministry, singing in the choir and helping decorate for VBS.
Adam holds a Master's degree from UNF in Conducting as well as a Bachelor's degree in Composition from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. He has led the Westside Generational Orchestra and Jazz Band since August 2019. Additionally, he directs the Don Thompson Chorale, an auditioned Jacksonville Community Chorus.
By Jesus’ saving grace, Adam accepted Christ and was born again at an international revival service at Victory World Outreach in Colorado Springs and was later baptized at New Life Church on Easter 2010. His calling is to lead worship with passion and priority.
“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.” Psalm 150
