After growing up in Macon, GA, Adam spent 17 years serving in Russia with Moscow Bible Church locally and training pastors nationally. He met his wife Heather there, also serving in mission both in Moscow and Siberia. In 2011 the Richardsons moved to England, both to complete the transition of ministry to the Russians as well as to study. Adam received his BA from Vanderbilt (Russian, English), his MA from Dallas Theological Seminary (Biblical Studies), and his PhD from the University of Leicester (History), a study of the life and works of the 17th century English minister Thomas Manton.
Having grown up in GA, Adam enjoys college football (March Madness is OK too), fishing, baseball, water skiing, guitar, mandolin, and grilling. He and his wife Heather were married in 2001 and have three children, which keeps the house hopping.
