Russell has teaching, business and missions experience. This involvement, along with experience as an elder and teacher, and with students in theological training, means he is able to relate to many. Russell is regularly involved in leadership training and church coaching.
Russell is available as Missions Director to speak on mission, however he is also able to speak within the plans of your preaching series as long as he is also able to share briefly about the ministry of GC3.
As Youth Director with GC3 I have had the privilege of taking Headspace teams to Thailand, navigating cross cultural waters, places of hope amoungst the hopeless, strange food and bathrooms and all the other things that come with taking 15 teenagers to a foreign country. Previous to this I've have had cross cultural experiences in Zambia and Romania. All of which I'd be happy to speak about.
I love speaking to youth about Headspace, mission and the cross cultural opportunities for them here in NZ and abroad. I can also come and share with adults on how to encourage todays youth in mission.
