Director of Technology
Russ has spent much of his life serving in church ministry on many different technical levels. Early in his career, he traveled with a variety of Christian Gospel singing groups around the southwest United States, supporting their production and technical needs. He has produced the technical aspects of concert series for several artists like Sandi Patti and David Clydesdale. From his high school years on, Russ served alongside his father, who was a pastor. Together they did local church ministry and church planting. After college, Russ spent 16 years in Hollywood, developing and using his technical skills in the film industry. Following his film career, Russ relocated to the Pacific Northwest and was involved in manufacturing and logistics for import. He began to serve at Alderwood in a volunteer capacity in 2002. His desire is to technically equip ministries for the kingdom in such a way that Christ remains the focus. This commitment led Russ to become a full-time staff member in 2014. He and his wife Christine live in Lynnwood, and enjoy camping and boating whenever possible.
