We had the good fortune of connecting with Adam Fish and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Adam, how does your business help the community?
My wife and I run a nonprofit that shares stories of people’s experiences with God. In a culture of division we believe Jesus’ message of radical inclusion is the answer. He searches for the outsider and lays down His life to restore and redeem. We’ve shared over 100 powerful stories about people finding hope, healing, freedom and joy as a result of this supernatural connection to a loving God.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The Unseen Story — is a platform for collecting and sharing powerful stories of encounters with God. My beliefs and convictions about life are intimately entwined in this project. 20 years of following Jesus as a commercial photographer working with ad agencies and corporate clients gave me a unique perspective on the messaging of our consumeristic culture. I realized there had to be more than selling stuff with my photography. On a trip to Africa in 2008 I began telling stories through photography of the Kenyan genocide. I saw the destructive power of hate and division firsthand. I knew then I wanted to be involved in telling the story of God’s love and radical pursuit of His people.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Favorite places to eat are Eno’s Pizza the Pig Smiley is amazing. Meso Maya the guac and queso is delicious. My wife and I used to live on the Katy Trail and visit Wild About Harry’s. The peppermint ice cream with hot fudge brings back sweet memories – as I type this my mouth is watering. SO good. We enjoy time at White Rock Lake, The Arboretum and the Bishop Arts District. Klyde Warren Park is great. I love Ft. Worth Modern and the botanical gardens.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
The single biggest reason that I am who I am today is due to my pursuit of Jesus. I was not a person who was raised in church or had any religious context growing up. My faith journey began in my mid 20’s as a result of a simple prayer, “God I need your help”. 20 years later I continue to ask the very same question. The difference today is that I have thousands of stories of Him doing just that in my life and the lives of others.
