Adam Blaisdell

Vice Chairman
Adam Blaisdell – Born in the St Louis MO area, Adam made a decision for Christ at a Christian summer camp when He was 12. “I had a moment where I knew God was asking me to make a decision to put my trust in Him. It wasn’t pressed on me or even asked by an adult. Looking back on it I know the Holy Spirit was at work in that moment. I also have come to realize the importance my parents had in putting me in places and situations where God had the opportunity to speak to me. 35 years later as a father of 2 I know the importance of doing the same for my children, and in no more important way than praying for them consistently and allowing God to work in moments where He becomes real to them.” Adam resides in the Saratoga Springs NY area with his bride Jackie and their 2 children, Elena and Ethan. He serves in his local church and with a missions organization, having a heart for discipleship and prayer. He works professionally in sales and in the information sciences.

Rohan Ramharack

Director of Outreach and Expansion

I accepted the Lord Jesus as my savior on August 4, 1977 at the age of 16 in Trinidad. I moved to the United States on August 19, 1979. I met my wife Patricia at the hospital where we both worked. We got married on June 28, 1986 in Brooklyn, New York. We moved to Freehold, New Jersey on June 26, 1988 and Jackson, New Jersey on June 20, 1996 where we currently reside. We are blessed with 3 daughters who we raised to honor the Lord and respect those in authority. We sought God’s guidance every step of the way as we raised our girls.

Since we moved to New Jersey, we’ve been actively involved in the churches with which we aligned ourselves, me with the men’s and couples’ ministries, my wife with the women’s and couples’ ministries. Our foundation is firmly built on God’s word and prayer.

I have a heart to see men take up or return to the place God called us – THE SPIRITUAL HEAD OF OUR HOUSEHOLDS. I seek His guidance with patience and openness in my role in helping men turn their hearts back to their children and their children’s hearts back to their fathers. I do this with the help of one of my favorite scriptures – Isaiah 40:31
