Dr. Calvin Russell, a native of Miami says he, “loves the Lord who has declared my life to serving his people and worshipping and giving praise to him”
Russell is a graduate of Revelation Bible College from which he earned his Doctorate Degree in Theology. His reason for earning a degree was not only to get a Ph.D, but also to learn as much as possible so that he can continually, rightly divide the word of God, he said. In 1981, Russell was a member of the House of God Miracle Revival Fellowship, then under the leadership of Mother Sevilla Cook. Under Rev. Junior Mortimore, Russell was selected to lead the Bus Ministry, ordained a deacon and chaired the Hospital Ministry.In 2010, Russell, his wife Jannie and a few devoted Christians founded Lifetime Outreach Ministry. The membership was small but growing and determined to follow God’s word according to a group of members.
“Though he is younger than I am, I am with the church because God has called Dr. Russell [his younger brother] to pastor Lifeline Ministry and I support him with all of my heart, said Rev. Joe Russell, Calvin’s older brother. “He is a great preacher and my title at the church is “teacher.”
