After Bible College, Russ entered into several areas of ministry. He served as a Visitation Pastor, Interim Pastor, Associate Pastor and Senior Pastor. In 1989 Russ started traveling the country as an Evangelist. In 2002 the Lord directed him to start Destiny Church. Then in August of 2015 the Lord led him to start Destiny Healing Center.
The three primary areas God has called Russ to minister are gifts of healings, a powerful prophetic anointing and the ministry of encouragement, exhorting the body of Christ to be all that God has called them to be.
