  •  Favorite OT Verse:  Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. (NIV)
  •  Favorite NT Verse:  John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.” (ESV)

 Russell enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf with friends, relaxing on the beach, and serving others!

Mt. Zion is a place that God has used for many generations to be the “light” in this community. Pastor Russell wants to lead this congregation to a place of true worship; where Jesus is the central focus of everything! It would be an honor to have you join us as we try to spread the Agape love of Christ to all!
