Russ and his wife Barb were led to the ministry of Saint Francis Christian School in the fall of 1977.  Since that time, Russ has faithfully served as administrator and teacher of high school math and science.  Russ earned his Bachelors of Arts degree from Maranatha Baptist University with a major in Bible and minors in Christian education and history.  God has led both Russ and Barb through serious health experiences like cancer and a heart attack and God has proved He is faithful in the mist of these trials.  Two verses that have provided direction to Russ throughout his life are Job 23:10 “But he knows the way that I take; when he has tried me, I shall come out as Gold.”  and Jeremiah 29:11 “ For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
