Bill Russell

Pastor, Elder

Whom do I have in heaven but You? And I desire nothing on earth but You. 26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, my portion forever.

Pastor Bill has a passion for preaching God’s Word! He has a desire to make God’s Word relevant to people’s lives today and to help them apply it in practical terms. He faithfully presents God’s Word through intentional clarity, a commitment to serious Bible study, creative illustrations, detailed handouts, a PowerPoint presentation that captures your attention and much reliance on prayer. It is all a part of what he likes to call Transformational-Teaching!

Pastor Bill also has a passion for accurate and authentic worship! As he leads theworship team and as they lead the congregation in worship each week, he looks for songs with meaningful lyrics, melodies that are easy to sing, and messages that resonate from within us! By combining the best of today’s new worship songs, along with some of the richest hymns of yesterday, his desire is to simply create an atmosphere where God’s people can connect with their creator in experience Him in  intimate worship!

Pastor Bill’s greatest passion may just be his passion for prayer! Recognizing that prayer is the difference maker in one’s personal life as well as any ministry, he is committed to providing opportunities for corporate prayer! Through weekly prayer gatherings at the church, it is his desire to create a culture of intercessory prayer within the church!

Finally Pastor Bill has a passion for People! He loves the opportunity to meet one on one with people, to share in their joys and struggles and to encourage them in their Christian walk.
