Who Are We?
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.
Dianne Riveiro was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. When she was six years old, her family immigrated to Australia in a last-ditch effort to save their struggling family. It was while they lived in Adelaide, South Australia that her whole family heard the Gospel and that Dianne, her parents, and her brother all accepted Christ. Years later, they moved back to Scotland to assist a church plant in their home town of Aberdeen.
In 2001, both Adam and Dianne followed God’s leading to attend Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City. They met while working in the school cafeteria and later fell in love. Two years after the couple met, they were married at Bible Baptist Church in Stillwater, Oklahoma. While studying at Heartland, both Adam and Dianne served in children’s and teen ministries at Southwest Baptist Church. In 2005, Adam graduated with a bachelors in pastoral studies, and Dianne graduated with her associates in church education.
After graduation, the Riveiro family moved back to Tampa to serve at West Gate Baptist Church under the ministries of Pastor Bruce E. Turner and Pastor George Pirt. 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. During that time, Dianne also graduated from Florida Baptist College with her bachelor’s degree in early childhood development.
In the fall of 2011, God laid it on the hearts of the Riveiro’s 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. Since that time, God has blessed the young congregation with a rented facility at 800 Washington Street in Easton.
The Riveiro’s enjoy being active in the community with Adam appointed by Easton’s Select Board in 2019 to the town’s Commission on Disability, where he now serves as treasurer. Adam has also served on the board of directors at Heartland Baptist Bible College since 2017.
Adam is a guest columnist for the Journal News Independent (an Easton-area newspaper), Save New England Magazine, and the Global Baptist Times. To date, he’s written over 100 published columns on various biblical subjects. Additionally, Adam and Dianne are both columnists for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, the trade magazine for homeschool families.
Adam and Dianne have four children: Bethany, Kaylee, AJ, and Peyton. You can contact either Adam or Dianne by email using the addresses at the bottom of the page.
Why “Ready Scribe?”
Ezra 7:6 This Ezra went up from Babylon; and he was a ready scribe in the law of Moses, which the Lord God of Israel had given: and the king granted him all his request, according to the hand of the Lord his God upon him.
Ezra 7:10 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.
Why are we called “Ready Scribe Publications?” Several years ago, Adam heard a message by Sam Davison which referenced Ezra as the ready scribe. In this sermon, Pastor Davison explained the need for a new generation of Ezra’s who are willing to serve as a ready scribe in this day and age.
It’s with this spirit that we’ve started Ready Scribe Publications. We don’t describe ourselves as experts. Instead, we feel more like conduits passing on information from one generation of Christian servants to another. In this way, 2 Timothy 2:2 comes to mind, “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”
It’s our prayer that we are just a small part of a greater movement by independent Baptists who are willing to put their practical ministry experiences into print.
