Adams Grade School, Inc was conceived in 1961 by Pastor and Mrs. J. B. Adams. Pastor Adams initially worked at the South Pacific Railroad (Englewood Plant). The economy took a turn for the worst and Pastor Adams was laid off from South Pacific Railroad. Being unemployed was not an option for Pastor Adams because he had an obligation to provide for his wife and four daughters. The Adams family explored multiple alternatives and concluded that a second career in childcare was the path the Lord was leading them down. Matthew 19:14 says, “Jesus said, let the little children come to me. Don’t stop them, because the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to people who are like these children”. This scripture was near and dear to the loving couple. Their prayers and trust in God led them to take a leap of faith into the second phase of their lives.
