About Adam Atkinson
Adam has a deep passion for serving the Lord and is an author, youth pastor, and avid 'do-er' of discipleship.
Full Bio: Adam has a deep passion for serving the Lord. He has served in many roles - from camp counselor to youth pastor, to sports ministry leader, and more... After graduating from Baptist Bible College with a BS (Youth Pastor) he served in a bi-vocational role as a youth pastor for four years. It was during this time that he felt a calling from God for him and his wife to take their next step in serving God. That decision led them to serve as interns alongside a missionary family in the Dominican Republic for three months. During that time Adam grew as a leader and for the first time his world view completely changed. He was able to see outside of his comfort zone and from that experience he was willing to go wherever God led. When Adam and his wife returned home, he knew it was time to take what he learned and apply it. It was through constant prayer that God brought PurposeCity to his attention and instantly he knew he had to be a part of this great movement.

I have seen a major transformation take place in my personality recently. I never thought I needed growth in this area before, frankly because I didn’t believe my personality was broken, but it definitely needed repair. So what was the problem you ask? I was transformed from a “yes-man” into a “do-er.” You see, growing […]
I have a tradition each time I go someplace new – I always take a picture of my feet. This may sound odd, but to me it a symbolic – I am able to stop and say, “look where my feet have taken me today!” Though we have planes and cars that take us most […]
