GREENVILLE, S.C. (February 18, 2019) – Dr. Jeffrey Adams will join the Bob Jones University faculty this spring as a professor in the Division of Management in the School of Business.
“I am pleased that Dr. Adams has joined the faculty of the School of Business,” said Dr. Robert Hucks, chair of the Division of Management. “Dr. Adams comes to BJU with an extensive academic background as well as tremendous experience. Most importantly, he has consistently demonstrated his desire to serve God and to help prepare the next generation of business student for ministry.”
Adams earned a BA with honors in sociology and psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1978. He later earned a MS in rehabilitation counseling from the UNC Medical School at Chapel Hill. In 1991, Adams completed a JD from North Carolina Central University. He completed a MBA from Devry University Keller School of Business in Tampa, Florida, in 2010.
He has held several counseling positions with the North Carolina Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and served as director of counseling services at Louisburg College in Louisburg, North Carolina. Adams served as principal at Calvary Christian School from 1990-1992.
He practiced law as an attorney with several firms, including the Christian Law Association, and served on the faculty and as in-house legal counsel at both Pensacola Christian College and Clearwater Christian College. For the past 14 years Adams had his own law practice in Largo and Pensacola, Florida.
Adams will be instrumental in developing the new paralegal studies associate degree program, as well as assume other responsibilities in the School of Business.
“I have really missed teaching and believe coming here has been providential. There are three times in my life where it is clear where the Lord placed me and this is one of those times,” said Adams. “I had never been to BJU or Greenville until my interview in September, and everything has just worked together smoothly. I am looking forward to getting to know my students and help them achieve what God has for them. I cannot think of any other place I would rather be.”
Jeff and his wife, Elizabeth, have three children and eight grandchildren.
