Meet Our Lead Pastors
Along with their three daughters Madiha, Zali, and Zara, Pastors Adam and Keira Smallcombe moved from Newcastle, Australia in response to the call of God to plant a church in Silicon Valley. Their leadership can be characterized as one of audacious faith, genuine relationship, and a passionate pursuit of Jesus. They love nothing more than to see people come into a relationship with Jesus and follow Him.
Motorcycle enthusiast, coffee connoisseur, and avid crossfit-er, Pastor Adam believes in living life to the fullest because that is God’s intention for us. As a youth, God ignited a passion in him to be a builder of the Kingdom of God here on earth. While studying at C3 Bible College and Alphacrusis College, he built a Youth Ministry in Newcastle from a handful of youth to hundreds passionately pursuing Jesus. Pastor Adam is a sought after speaker locally and globally, having spoken at conferences, events, and leadership workshops. His communication and pastoring style can be characterized by his humor and relentless determination to build people and pull out all God has for them.
Many know her as the Velvet Hammer because of her gift of delivering the truth in such a compelling way. As co-Lead Pastor, she is pioneering what a woman in ministry and in leadership can look like. Her preaching and pastoring style can be characterized by her extreme love and care for people, as well as the culture of honor that she exudes to everyone she meets. Her life has been a catalyst to the founding and incredible momentum of VIVE Women, VIVE CHURCH’s Women’s Ministry. In the past few years, Pastor Keira has traveled across the world to preach the gospel but ultimately she is most passionate about the local church and building leaders.
