In 1996 God saved the prodigal son of a pastor, and for the last 25 years since Adam Durso has set his heart on seeing God’s grace transform his beloved New York City. From his early days of facilitating the largest youth revival the city has ever seen via ‘Youth Explosion’ to his current positions as a pastor, President of LEAD.NYC, Vice-President of Movement.org, and Clergy Advisory Council to NYC’s Mayor, God has continually placed a burden on Adam to see God’s people connected to one another, equipped in their callings, and launched to impact their spheres of influence. This call has taken front and center in his service to NYC’s leaders through LEAD.NYC, as the CEO of Catalytic Consulting NYC, as well as in his role in pastoring at the Christian Cultural Center. The anchor and support for all Adam does is his wife of 20+ years, Lucy, and his three amazing children.
