Adam and Jinnalee Barta
Adam was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington where he developed a love for music and a desire for God at a very young age.
In the fall of 2000, after seven years of intense musical training and participation in various musical organizations, Adam responded to the call of God and enrolled in the Master’s Commission program at Tacoma Life Center, a ministry school with an emphasis in ministerial leadership and education. It was there that he met his future bride Jinnalee, an Oregonian from the Tillamook Bay area, who shared a calling for ministry and an equal love and appreciation for all things music and creativity. The two of them were developed, trained, and launched into full-time ministry under the late Dr. Fulton W. Buntain.
In 2003, Adam and Jinnalee, engaged to be married, relocated to Las Vegas where Adam would serve as the Worship and Creative Arts Pastor at the International Church of Las Vegas for nearly a decade. During the course of ministry there, they had the delight of seeing countless people transformed through music and the arts in the city of Las Vegas and throughout various parts of the world.
In July of 2012, Adam and Jinnalee joined the Life Church family where Adam is the Worship Arts Pastor. As a couple united in worship ministry, they have developed an insatiable desire for God’s presence and a heart to see people thrive in their gifts and creative potential. They have made it their life’s mission to see the northwest come to know Jesus intimately and profoundly, and to develop a lifestyle of worship.
