Bishop Linda Adams
In July 2019, Rev. D. Linda Adams was elected as the first female bishop in the 160-year history of the Free Methodist Church USA. Her territory oversees the northern United States from eastern Montana to West Virginia, as well as the Free Methodist work in all the countries in Latin America that have not yet become General Conferences.
Prior to her election, Bishop Adams served the Free Methodist Church as Director of International Child Care Ministries (ICCM) for eleven years. ICCM is a child sponsorship initiative serving approximately 20,000 children in 33 countries around the world. Before taking up leadership of ICCM, Bishop Adams served churches in Michigan, Illinois and New York. Bishop Adams is a graduate of Spring Arbor University and earned her Master of Divinity (1991) and Doctor of Ministry (2000) degrees from Asbury Theological Seminary.
Born in Ft. Wayne, IN, Supt. Mike Hopper accepted Christ as a child, and sensed a call to ministry while at Greenville College. As a teen, he participated in Bible Quizzing, and later served for 15 years as our denominational Bible Quiz Director. Following graduation from Greenville College and Asbury Theological Seminary, he pastored Free Methodist Churches in Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, and Minnesota. In addition, he has been a law enforcement chaplain.
Mike and his wife Janet (also an ordained elder) have been married for 36 years and have three children and have two grandchildren. In his free time, Mike enjoys swimming, cheering on the Minnesota Vikings, and spending time with his family. Mike has a shepherd's heart and administrative gift and enjoys serving God with the North Central Conference team. Mike has served as superintendent for four years.
