Pastor/Elder Tim Adams 

My wife Cheri and I have been residents of Craig Colorado since October of 2013. We are very blessed and pleased to be part of Sovereign Grace Community Church of the Yampa Valley. Both Cheri and I are natives of Kansas, I was born in Manhattan and Cheri was born in Pittsburg.


God saved me at the age of 32. Even though I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home and in a church that faithfully preached the gospel, I did not live the life of a believer; I didn’t “bear fruit unto salvation.” At the age of 32 I was at the end of myself and God in His grace and mercy saved me. Shortly thereafter I felt God calling me into the ministry and was given several opportunities to preach. God confirmed His call on my life and after several years of bi-vocational ministry in Kansas, I enrolled at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri. After attending MBTS Cheri and I felt the call to ministry in the Yampa Valley and have been here ever since.


I am a graduate of Kansas State University so I can often be found watching K-State football or basketball. I love to study God’s Word and prepare sermons. If I’m not doing those things I can be found skiing in the winter, and hiking, biking, and playing golf in the summer.


Both Cheri and I have a burden and calling to serve God’s people and are very pleased to be given the great privilege of shepherding Sovereign Grace Community Church of the Yampa Valley.  We cannot wait to see what God does through this ministry. 


Sam Anderson, Elder 

On the 17th day of April back in 1980 (a very blessed and brillant day) the Anderson family of Cedaredge, CO was blessed with a ray of hope; a bouncing baby boy - me!  I was born at home on the family farm.

 This farm is where I grew until the mature and very well educated age of  17.  It was then when my beautiful family (wife and four children) was started.  With the realization of the necessity of providing for us,  I set out to make my fortune as a cow boy. That lasted about a month. as I realized we needed to eat!  I then went to work in road construction and the quarry until I was blessed with the opportunity to work for Trapper Mine as an apprentice mechanic.      


As my family grew I began to be convicted of the need to grow in the Lord as well. I had accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was a boy, but it wasn’t until I had my own children that I really began to seek Him.        

We have now lived in the Yampa Valley for 18 great years, blessed beyond measure! Christ continues to perfect the good work He began in us all those years ago.
