Dr. Steve & Renee Russell

Steve & Renee came to Appalachian Bible College as Fellowship Members in 2021 from Central Baptist Church in Dothan, AL, where Steve served as pastor for 30 years. As they now serve the student body of ABC and Mount Olive Bible College, they are perfectly positioned to fulfill their greatest desire for the local church: "To share the gospel to a lost and dying world, [and] for believers to learn the truth of God's Word and then to live in a manner which displays that truth to others around them."

Why are you passionate about your role at ABC?

I have the opportunity to teach and fellowship with men who desire to know God and be transformed by His Word.
