Rev. Adam Mixon is no stranger to working with Macedonian Ministry. Over the last several years he has shared his gifts with us in various ways and we are grateful that his involvement continues to increase.
Adam has been engaged with the work of Macedonian Ministry for over six years as a cohort facilitator, workshop leader, content developer, and as an invaluable conversation partner and advisor. While Adam will continue in several of these roles, he is also involved in helping to shape the broader vision of Macedonian Ministry, with a particular focus on our program’s evolving content and resources.
“I said ‘yes’ to an expanded role with Macedonian Ministry, because I feel called to care for those who care for the souls of others, and I think MM aligns well with my sense of calling. MM also reminds me of the broadness of the Body of Christ – the depth and the diversity of the Church. I think that many answers to the current dilemmas facing the Church, concerning decline and relevance, are somehow requisite to a healthy response and embrace of this rich diversity. MM, in meaningful ways, provides the space for us to learn and listen, finally, to the margins. MM is revolutionary and reforming work. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to wade out into this deep place!”
Adam Mixon has been preaching and pastoring for over 25 years, serving the Zion Spring Baptist Church, Birmingham Alabama for 18 years.
