Intro words from Pastor Russell: Senior pastor at Community Wesleyan Church in Horseheads NY for 11 years.  Married to Cindy with 3 adult Children – Joe (Nichole); Bill (Kristina); Andy; and let’s not forget our grandchildren, Melanie, Emilia, & Tucker.

I grew up in Horseheads, called into ministry later in life and began full time ministry in December 2004, as Assistant Pastor of Community Wesleyan Church.

As I look back on my life, I am amazed at the goodness and faithfulness of God in my life. Even at the age of 8, God had already told my wife that she was gonna marry me; she proclaimed it and it happened. His Hand has been on my life and direction for years. He sought me, found me, and waited patiently for me to surrender my life; one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me.

Once I was a very shy young man that God called to serve, and He transformed me into His child who desires to proclaim His Good News at every opportunity.
