From Capitol Hill to the halls of Florida’s Capitol, this veteran government affairs executive turned faith-based ministry leader shares his knowledge of building a culture of success and restoring civility to life as we know it.
Adam Hollingsworth knows a thing or two about politics. He spent 25 years in and around government – on Capitol Hill, in the halls of Florida’s Capitol, for one of Florida’s largest local governments, and as the chief lobbyist for one of America’s most formidable rail systems.
He now serves a ministry based in suburban Atlanta, where he has successfully transitioned his passion for government service, to his passion for spreading the hope of the gospel in North America and the nations.
Adam is often called upon to share tales of a political vagabond, from Corrine Brown to Rick Scott, as well as why government matters and the honor of service.
He currently serves as chief marketing officer for the North American Mission Board. Prior to joining NAMB, he was the longest-serving chief of staff to Florida Governor Rick Scott, overseeing a workforce of more than 100,000 and a $70+ billion budget. He also served as chief of staff to Jacksonville, FL, Mayor John Peyton, and in his younger years, served on Capitol Hill as an aide to two former members of the U.S. Congress. He spent nearly 10 years in the private sector with CSX Corporation and as CEO of Parallel Infrastructure LLC.
He’s served on the board of directors for the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee and the University of North Florida’s Board of Trustees. He and his family reside in suburban Atlanta. He received his BA in Communications from the University of Alabama.
