Today on The Pursuit: Adam Taylor
Adam is the president of Sojourners, a network of progressive Christians, focused on the biblical call to social justice. Before that, Adam was leading the faith initiative at the World Bank, leading advocacy at World Vision US, and leading the mission at Global Justice. His heart for justice has taken him around the world and back, but it was his heart for pursuing God that brought him close to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
