Bob Russell  

renewal weekend with bob Russell

Bob Russell will be speaking at Plain City Presbyterian Church June 10th and 11th for a renewal weekend! God has blessed Bob Russell with a life much different than one he could have ever imagined. As a young man growing up in northern Pennsylvania, Bob had intended on becoming a high school basketball coach in his hometown. During his senior year of high school, however, Bob realized a desire in his heart to enter the ministry. Soon thereafter, he enrolled in Cincinnati Bible Seminary where he graduated in 1965.
At just twenty-two years of age, Bob became the pastor of Southeast Christian Church. That small congregation of 120 members became one of the largest churches in America, with 18,000 people attending the four worship services every weekend in 2006 when Bob retired. Now through Bob Russell Ministries, Bob continues to preach at churches and conferences throughout the United States, provide guidance for church leadership, mentor other ministers and author Bible study videos for use in small groups. An accomplished author, Bob has written over a dozen books.

In addition to his weekly messages to 18,000 attendees at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, Bob has been speaking to churches, colleges and civic groups for over 40 years, sharing God’s word in a fresh, engaging and convicting manner. He has spoken in just about every state and several foreign countries. His sermons have been carried on 38 radio stations broadcasting from locations as distant as Australia and Hawaii. Bob’s gift of humor and insight, along with his unyielding commitment to honesty and integrity, will inspire the hearts of those who listen to consider Biblical truths as they relate to life in contemporary culture.
