DOVER, Del.-Loren Russell, regional team leader for the Partnership Missions Mobilization Group/Cooperative Strategies Team of the North American Mission Board, will be the featured speaker at this year’s Pre-Convention Worship Celebration on Nov. 9 at the Dover Sheraton Hotel in Dover, Del.
The Delaware Association Mass Choir will lead the worship for this special Sunday night celebration, which begins at 6:30 p.m.
A native New Yorker, Russell received his bachelor’s degree in business from The Metropolitan College of New York (formerly Audrey Cohen College) and his master of divinity degree from Drew Theological University. He and his wife, Evelyn, make their home in the Bronx, New York.
Russell had a long career as a financial planner and money manager before establishing his own financial consulting company. Once called into the gospel ministry, Russell minimized his entrepreneurial endeavors, eventually working as the public relations director for a major foster care agency in New York.
He simultaneously took on multiple roles in the church as trustee, adult Sunday school teacher, Bible instructor, men’s ministry director, and minister of education.
His ordination as a minister of the gospel and his diversified background uniquely qualify Russell to work well with people at any level of their Christian walk.
In addition to his ministry, Loren is very active in community affairs.
One quote of Martin Luther King, Jr. epitomizes his philosophy of life: “We must all learn to live together as brothers or we will all perish together as fools.”
