Adam Martino family C32 Planters Profile
Adam Martino
We are thrilled to introduce Adam and Leslie Martino as one of our C32 Church Planters.  Adam and Leslie have been married for 14 years and have 3 amazing children.  They currently reside and look forward to planting in Richmond, VA.

Adam is a graduate of Elim Bible Institute.  He is an Ordained Minister and the son of Church Planters as well.  His parents planted a church in Staten Island, NY.   Adam has served as a worship Pastor and Associate Pastor  and truly believes that our greatest ministry is relationship - with God and those around us.  Adam's heart is to see those that are far from God, enter into NEW life with Him.

In Adam's words: "My wife and children are fired up, ready and willing to work hard using their talents and gifts for this cause. We are truly excited, through United Church we believe Gods desire is to unite a diverse community in the city of Richmond!  United in God, united by the gospel, united through grace"

"Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still." E.M. Bounds
This quote by E.M. Bounds is a gentle reminder of the importance of undergirding our C32 Initiative in prayer.  Over the summer, we will continue to pray for our cities - our planters, our parents and partners, our financial provision and especially for God to bless an abundant harvest of souls.  We know that we may not ALL be church planters and yet we can all participate in that which is most important- PRAYER.
We'd love for you to consider hosting one of our
City Quake gatherings
Please know, you don't need to be located in the city to pray for the city.  The only requirement would be to offer a gathering place.

If you are interested in hosting, please contact the Church Planting Office at 703-753-2814.
