Adam Mabry

Adam is the Lead Pastor of Aletheia Church in Boston, MA — a growing, diverse church passionately committed to bringing the truth, grace, and the changing power of the Gospel for the glory of God and the good of all people.

Adam is married to the love of his life, Hope, a profoundly gifted musician, photographer, educator, and mother. About 4 months after marriage, they were radically and unexpectedly called into ministry, moving them to Edinburgh, Scotland to help plant two new churches. For five years, they labored alongside a great team, had two more children, and saw God do amazing things. Today there stand two new churches where there were none — a wonderful grace — growing and thriving under great leaders.

In 2010, they planted Aletheia Church in Boston. Fueled with a passion for God’s truth and grace to permeate all areas of society, Aletheia began in their living room, and has not ceased to grow and reach those who were once far from God. Adam now leads a diverse, disciple-making team who lead the church with him.

Completing Master’s Degrees at Reformed Theological Seminary (M.A.) and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (Th.M.), and a D.Min from Gordon-Conwell, he will soon complete his Ph.D. at The University of Aberdeen. In demand worldwide as a teacher and preacher, he has also written a few books, such at The Art of Rest: Faith to Hit Pause in a World that Never Stops, and Stop Taking Sides: How Truth in Tension Saves us from Anxiety and Outrage. In 2019, he joined the faculty of Every Nation Seminary as a Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies.

He presently resides in the Boston area with his wife, Hope, and their four children, Alanna, Nora, Cole, and Wyatt.
