Adams was Pastor of the Church in Lunenburg. "Men of unprincipled hearts, of empty heads, and the most debauched lives, have been known to sit in St. Peter's chair... These persons desired the Bishop's office, not for what it is in itself, but only for the profits and dignities that were attached to it." Stearns served as the minister of the Church in Lincoln until his death in 1826.
