Adam Dorso says he felt “angry, frustrated, upset!!!” the day his parents decided to leave a lucrative family business to become full-time pastors.
“Angry, frustrated, upset!!!” That’s how Adam Durso felt the day his parents decided to leave a lucrative family business to become full-time pastors. He would continue to “play the role” in church until he had the chance to escape. Going away to college was his open door, and with his newfound freedom, Adam began to live a reckless & promiscuous lifestyle. At the end of his first year of college he was forced to call home for money. His father would not send any money. Instead, he offered Adam a job doing maintenance work at the church. Adam refused. He reasoned that with his 3.7 GPA and an extensive resume he would not resort to working for his father. But after failed attempts to get another job, Adam had no choice but to call home. It was during a prayer service at the church that Adam came to the realization of his need of a Savior. He gave his heart to Jesus Christ that day and his life was forever changed.
In the fall of 1996, while cleaning the church sanctuary, Adam heard the words “Youth Explosion” and had a vision of a room filled with young people. He knew at that moment God was calling him to begin a youth ministry. He responded to God’s call and shared the vision with his parents. Soon after, Adam assembled a small team of youth leaders who shared his passion. They started out with only 18 young people, but continued to pray and fast. In their first meeting, over 60 young people flooded the altar, committing their lives to Jesus Christ. Since then, the ministry has welcomed 500 young people every Friday night at their weekly service. Youth Explosion has been featured on the 700 Club, BET Nightly News, ABC Teen News, CBS News, BBC Radio, in the NY Times, VIBE Magazine, and Newsday. Adam Durso has continued to commit himself to the youth of the surrounding communities, to the mission of making disciples, and to the declaration of preaching the gospel fearlessly and with great power.
Though Adam is no longer Youth Pastor over YE Ministries, his vision has not changed for the youth of this nation. Presently, Executive Pastor of Christ Tabernacle and the Executive Director of Youth Explosion Ministries, Adam has expanded his vision to consulting and partnering with churches worldwide that are focused on training, strengthening, and empowering youth pastors everywhere. For Adam, Faith Breathes LLC is an extension to this mission, as he looks to encourage people everywhere to put their faith in God and in His Son Jesus Christ.
