Adam Teer, general manager of the Clarion Pointe Hotel and a father of four, says the uncertainty that has come with COVID-19 is overwhelming not only for the travel and hospitality industries, but also for community leaders.

“When a lot of people are depending on you, it’s easier if the dependence is spread out over time,” Teer said. “Oh, church doesn’t need me right now, so it’s OK if I have a work crisis. The kids are at school, and everything’s OK at work, so the church needs my help a little more. When they all converge, that’s what’s been tough.”

Teer says his faith gives him both comfort and obligation in time of need.
