adamsBarry & Anneliese Adams
Barry Adams lives in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada with his wife Anneliese and their 3 children, Kristin, Stephen and Candice. Before entering into full time ministry in 1997, he spent 19 years working in the newspaper industry where he developed a passion to see the gospel creatively communicated in various forms of media.Barry entered into full time ministry in March 1997, serving as an associate pastor at Westview Christian Fellowship, a Mennonite Brethren Church located in his hometown of St. Catharines. In June 1998, while at a men’s retreat in North Bay, Ontario, Barry had a powerful encounter with the love of God as a Father through the ministry of Jack Winter and James Jordan. This new revelation of God’s love was the catalyst that brought about the Father’s Love Letter message. In January 1999, Barry shared the Father’s Love Letter multi media presentation as a sermon illustration as part of his message on the extravagant love of the Father. In November 1999, the Father’s Love Letter video was released and a new website (www.FathersLoveLetter.com) was launched. In March 2000, Barry and Anneliese founded Father Heart Communications in order to facilitate the growth of this new ministry.
