Adam Rushlow – Sr Associate Pastor Creative Media
What I Do:
I have the joy of leading the Communications, Worship Arts and Online Ministries of Christ Fellowship. I spend most of my time working alongside our teams to develop creative ways to reach more people using all forms of creative media. “From the curb to the Cross”, we are doing everything we can to make Jesus known.
What I Love About Christ Fellowship:
I love the balance of grace and truth. At Christ Fellowship, we’ve found a family of people who are welcoming to anyone without passing judgement, and at the same time there is an unbelievable energy of growth and change that pushes us to become more like Jesus. Our kids love Promiseland and their teachers, and we are o grateful for the relationships that have grown through our life group.
How I Ended Up at Christ Fellowship:
My wife, Joanna (Jo) and I moved to Texas with our kids in 2011 for work. We arrived in town on a Thursday night and tried out Christ Fellowship on Sunday morning. We never left and couldn’t imagine a better church home for us.
Before Christ Fellowship:
I’m originally from South Jersey and my wife Jo is from Canada. We met in New York at a Bible School, got married and then spent about 10 years in full time ministry before moving to Texas. My background is Marketing Communications. I started out as a Graphic Designer and then found my way into broader marketing roles. From 2011 through 2016, I worked at 2 technology companies here in Dallas, directing Marcom at the 1st and then working as a business analyst at the second.
How I Met Jesus:
I grew up having believed I trusted in Jesus when I was 4 on a Sunday morning before church. While I remember praying then, it really wasn’t until I went to college that I fully grasped what it meant to truly follow Him. On Sept 25, 1999 at 7:30 pm, it clicked for me after watching a stage production about the end times.
Favorite Bible Verse:
14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
I love most sports. Favs are basketball, football and golf.
