International Mobilization Coordinator
Originally from Powder Springs, GA, Russell studied Business Management and Finance at the University of West Georgia where he came to Christ at a CO conference during his sophomore year. In 1990 Russell married his college sweetheart, Wendy, and together they sensed God's call to build Christ-like leaders on the campus for the lost world. Russell and Wendy labored on the college campus with Student Mobilization (1991-1994), then with CO Birmingham (1994-1997) and CO Belo Horizonte in Brazil (1997-2010). Since 2010 Russell has served with CO Global from Birmingham, AL, where he is responsible to select, equip, & deploy the most healthy and prepared international staff possible for our international Campus Outreach teams. Russell's passion is to encourage, equip, and empower leaders to reach their full God-given potential for God's glory and greater kingdom impact. Russell and Wendy have 4 beautiful children: Luke, Levi, John, and Emmi.
