Pastor Adam Riveiro was born and raised in the city of Tampa, Florida. He began attending West Gate Christian School during the sixth grade. As a direct result of the Bible teaching and preaching at West Gate, Adam received Christ as his Savior at the age of sixteen. Two years later, he visited the Boston area on his senior trip. It was on this trip that Adam fell in love with the area. He also saw a need for more Bible-preaching, Baptist churches in New England.
In 2001, he followed God’s leading to attend Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City. It was there that he met his wife Dianne. She was a foreign student, born in Scotland and raised in Australia, before coming to the States for college. While studying at Heartland, both Adam and Dianne served in children’s and teen ministries at Southwest Baptist Church. Two years after the couple met, they were married at Bible Baptist Church in Stillwater, Oklahoma. In 2005, both Adam and Dianne graduated from Heartland.
After graduation, the Riveiro family moved back to Tampa to serve at West Gate Baptist Church. Adam served as the youth director and music director at West Gate, and was a part-time faculty member at Florida Baptist College. In addition, both Adam and Dianne taught at West Gate Christian School. In all, the Riveiro’s served at West Gate for seven years.
In the fall of 2011, God laid it on the hearts of the Riveiro’s and their pastor, George Pirt, to plant a church in the Boston area. After a time of planning and prayer, the town of Easton was chosen as the area to plant Liberty Baptist Church. LBC held its first service at Parkview School on June 9, 2013 with 53 in attendance. Since that time, God has blessed the young congregation with a permanent facility at 800 Washington Street in Easton.
Adam and Dianne have three children: Bethany, Kaylee, and AJ. They are also expecting their fourth child in August 2016. Visit our contact page to send an email to Pastor Riveiro. He would be glad to answer any questions you may have.
