John Russell Retires

This past weekend, John Russell retired after 40 years as senior minister of Lakeside Christian Church (Lakeside Park, KY).

“While the vast majority of Lakeside Christian Church’s 100-member congregation supported hiring 23-year-old John Russell as its senior minister [in 1970], a few had reservations because of his age,” said an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer. “’They took a chance on me and decided that I’d grow and they’d grow with me,’” Russell said.

Jamie Snyder will serve as the church’s new minister.
