Congratulations to New Seminary Graduates
Please join ADOTS in congratulating two new seminary graduates who answered a call to ministry through the care and mentorship from those at St. Patrick’s, Murfreesboro, TN. Congratulations to Rev. Cliff and Rev. Adam!
Rev. Cliff Syner
About five years ago, our family was introduced to the Anglican way and felt immediately at home. We felt Christ drawing us closer to Him and to His Church in a way that we had never experienced before. One evening during a catechism class, I felt a calling to the priesthood. Over the next year, Fr. Ray Kasch and the faithful laity of St. Patrick’s helped to confirm that calling. I spent a year at Gordon-Conwell and the last two in residence at Nashotah House, where I completed my Masters of Divinity. I am thankful for the strong biblical, theological, and prayerful formation that I have been blessed to receive. Our family is excited to be reconnecting to our community in Clarksville, TN.
My wife, Lisa, is finishing up her Masters in Clinical Mental Health and starts an internship in the Fall. I am starting a non-profit functional medicine clinic, where everyone will have the opportunity to flourish in God’s design for their life. As a family, we will explore creative ways to gather a body of believers around the shared vision to make Christ’s redemption and His nourishment known to our community. I will be serving as a Diocesan Church Planter under direction of Canon Chris. I am hoping to be ordained to the priesthood in November. We love and appreciate the Anglican Diocese of the South and are looking forward to serving there soon!
Rev. Adam James Gadomski
I am a former Baptist who was brought into the Anglican Tradition at St. Patrick’s Anglican Church in Smyrna/Murfreesboro, Tennessee. For the past three years I have been attending Trinity School for Ministry, where my education and spiritual formation has been blessed immensely. As of now, I am looking at moving to California this summer, where I will be an Associate Rector under Presiding Bishop Ray Sutton of the Reformed Episcopal Church, as well as a third grade teacher at a Classical Christian school there.
