Ministry Experience & Vision
After being raised Catholic until the age of 14, Russ was dramatically saved and discipled throughout the mid to late 1990s. Ministering in churches and on the streets since 1998, Russ has witnessed countless miracles and he operates in the realms of evangelism, teaching, prophecy, healing, and releasing freedom over those held by bondage and addiction. His passion is to help God's people be healthy, strong, and to shine bright to the world around them. He loves to support Pastors and other ministry leaders by providing supplemental preaching, teaching, and prayer to the Body of Christ around the world.
Russ has also authored 2 books to help people move forward in their walk with the Lord - Becoming A Champion Proverbs Devotional and Making Disciples and Leading Small Groups. Currently he and his wife Shari serve as the founders and leaders of The River - a Christian Church and School of Discipleship near Richmond, VA. The River is a place where Pastors, Missionaries, young adults, and Christians of all ages and denominations can come for refreshing, healing, teaching, discipleship, and training. Russ and Shari have been happily married since 2001 and together they have 4 amazing boys.
Ministering to both youth and adults, Russ has preached and taught God's Word in churches of various denominations in America, Central America, and Europe. He is especially passionate about intimacy with the Lord, discipleship, making disciples, small groups, spiritual identity, and spiritual maturity. He has compiled over 150 Biblical Seminars to be used throughout the Body of Christ to develop spiritual maturity.
