Adi was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania. After high school and the compulsory military service, he started his initial career in electronics as a technician but since 1997 he worked primarily as a translator for different organizations and businesses. In 1993, he met his wife Ana Maria as they were playing basketball and they married in 1997. Adi and Ana have two kids, Emma Rebecca and Mathew. Adi felt the call to serve in ministry soon after he became a Christian in 1993. He enrolled in a Bible college in 1995 and started his involvement in ministry at the same time. He served as a senior pastor for 16 years at Open Heaven Church, Bucharest, Romania. In 2014, after more than a year of praying and seeking God’s will, Adi took a step of faith and applied to Grace Church. In February 2015, he accepted the position of Pastor of Student Ministries providing leadership to the Youth Ministry (Senior High and Junior High) as well as the Young Adults group.
