A World of Difference: A New Podcast Partnership from Missio Alliance

Written by

Missio Alliance is pleased to announce a new collaboration with a new podcast partner, A World of Difference with Lori Adams-Brown.

On A World of Difference, you will hear a podcast for those who are different and who want to make a difference. This is a community of authors, activists, academics, and average people who want to right the wrongs of the world and make an impact for future generations. You can listen to more than 50 inspiring interviews of people all over the world who are doing just that in their own lives; featured guests include Dr. Kristin Du Mez, Dr. Scot McKnight, Dr. Mimi Haddad, Dr. Beth Allison Barr, Dr. Chuck DeGroat, Mandy Smith, and Tara Beth Leach.

A World of Difference is created, produced and hosted by Lori Adams-Brown. Lori is an international speaker and life coach in Silicon Valley. She worked in multicultural urban communities with the International Mission Board in Singapore for 10 years and spent the previous 10 years in Indonesia where she led strategy in community development during a civil war and later through tsunami relief. She has been a pastor in a diverse Bay Area congregation and development director in a local nonprofit. Lori speaks six languages, holds an M.A. in Intercultural Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, and has B.A.s in both Sociology and Spanish from Samford University. She grew up in an international school in Valencia, Venezuela where she learned to love city life, island life and Latin music. Her happy place is sipping a flat white coffee and having a deep conversation while enjoying either a beach or mountain vacation with the love of her life, Jason, and their urbanite third culture kids Nico, Alex, and Bella.

Missio Alliance is thrilled to add A World of Difference to our expanding list of podcast partnerships. This podcast brings world-class missional thought leaders and pastors into conversations about the most important issues facing the church and our world. Lori is an experienced ministry professional who cares passionately about the work of the church in the world. It’s an honor and privilege to share her work with our audience.

If you want to get a taste of what’s to come with this exciting partnership, listen to some of the previous episodes Lori has already released, such as:
