• Clay Smith
    Lead Pastor
    Clay Smith

    Since 1994, I’ve served as the Lead Pastor of ADBC.  What does that mean?  I’m the primary teacher.  I lead the church to fulfill its mission – to help as many people as possible take their next step toward Jesus.  Other more interesting stuff about me is that I am a Rare native Floridian and I am a cattleman in my sparetime. I write a weekly column that appears on my blog, here, and in newspapers across the Southeast. I have an amazing wife, Gina, who is a counselor at her own practice, Lifeway Counseling. I have three adult children who are paying their own way in life! My favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird & my life verse is Isaiah 40:31," Those who wait upon the LORD will renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk, and not grow faint."
