Pastor Russ is a native to the upstate of SC. He grew up in Greenville, SC, graduating from Woodmont High School before meeting Jesus while attending Anderson University. Russ went on to graduate in 2006 with a BA in Christian Ministries. In 2007 Russ married his wife Morgan and they served together for three years in Greenwood, SC, as Student Ministers. In 2010 Pastor Russ led a team of 8 from the southeast to plant a Church in California. God was gracious to their team and the Church saw significant numeric and spiritual growth over 12 years.
In 2021 Russ and Morgan began praying for and sensing God leading them into a new season of ministry. A friend local to the Five Forks area sent Pastor Russ a job posting about a unique Church on Hwy. 101. After meeting the leadership and the people at 4 Points the Chambers family knew that 4 Points was home. Pastor Russ and Morgan officially began serving at 4 Points in November of 2021. They love that their kids, Macie, Lucas, and Norah, love coming to Church. They are excited to walk into the Spirit filled future that Jesus has for 4 Points together!
