Russell comes to Lampstand from Iowa with 25 years of Pastoral experience. He is passionate about teaching God's Word in a way that is relevant to modern listeners while staying true to the original text. He believes that the local church is meant by God to bless the community in which it is located; and that strong Sunday morning worship, vibrant children's programs, and friendly outreach are the ways that we equip the church body to share the love of Jesus with those around us.
Russell and his wife Beth have been married for 28 years. They have 4 children and 2 granddaughters. He loves going to concerts, college sporting events, and vacations to historic sites. AND, he will not turn down a backyard barbeque or a board game night. Russell is the author of the new book Misquoted.
Lampstand is pleased to welcome Russell and partner with him in ministry.
