Adam’s advisor was the Director of the D. Min. program, Dr. Loyd Melton, Ph.D. Adam was blessed many times by God in that the Seminary is less than 20 minutes from his home, and that they added all of his military and hospital chaplaincy training to his degree, meaning that when he started the program he was already halfway finished! We call that God's Favor.
Dr. Erwin lives in Honea Path, SC with his wife, the Rev. Mrs. Kuhiwa Erwin, and their son Alrich. He is the son of Dr. and Mrs. Stuart and Karen Erwin of Dewy Rose, GA and the grandson of Mrs. Betty Erwin and Mrs. Juanita Seigler, and of the late Mr. Charles Erwin and the late Mr. Charles Seigler.
