Meet Justin Adour

As a pastor, I have led racial justice initiatives within several local churches. Additionally, I have served in and advocated for historically marginalized communities for the last 14+ years. As a church planter, I developed and implemented strategies as well as trained leaders for our church plant. As part of my doctoral research and dissertation, I created a pathway for developing justice-orientated churches. This also included working with other churches seeking to learn and grow in that area.

- Redeemer City to City
Justin brings considerable experience doing justice-oriented, cross-cultural work in marginalized communities. He spent a decade doing youth ministry in the South Bronx. He planted a church called Redeemer East Harlem in the fall of 2019 where he has led a new congregation to do great, gospel-centered, justice-oriented ministry in East Harlem. He has forged effective partnerships with local ministries working with the formerly incarcerated, women facing unexpected pregnancies, and many others.

I served Justin as a church planting coach during the early days of his church. I've had a front row seat in watching their church plant take shape with biblical justice as a core value. I had the privilege of reading Justin's Dmin project that was focused on helping church plants to have justice in their foundation as a church both as a doctrinal foundation and a lived experience. His speaking/writing gifts and direct experience in this subject greatly qualify him to coach and guide others.

One initiative is engaging the community more intentionally. From helping small businesses in the neighborhood and partnering with local organizations to organizing prayer marches, Justin's coaching and leadership helped to grow my own experience and leadership ability in these issues. He also helped me to develop a curriculum to increase awareness and engagement in my church. These materials have been critical in my own ability to lean into these issues.

Until Zion


Our goal at Until Zion is to provide insight and clarity into where biblical teachings on worship, justice, ethics, civic engagement, the Kingdom of God, and more, intersect with the practical and tangible expressions of ministry, especially ministry in communities on the margins of the dominant culture.
