Hi! I’m Russ Mitchell, and I find my true identity as a follower of Jesus Christ. Following Him has taken me places of which I never dreamed! Over the last 30 years I’ve served Him as a teacher, administrator, pastor, missionary, researcher, college professor and writer, living 20 years overseas in the Dominican Republic and Romania. My greatest passion is to see the Church of Jesus Christ mobilized to declare God’s Glory among the nations.
Presently I serve as Assistant Director of Research for One Challenge www.OneChallenge.org. Several of my projects involve gathering and analyzing information related to fulfilling the Great Commission, and developing our field missionary research site at www.OCResearch.info and training.
An important part of obeying Jesus’ Great Commission is partnering with others. Currently I am collaborating with:
- One Challenge
- The Student Volunteer Movement 2
- The Global Church Planting Network
- Kairos International
- Upland Community Church
- Taylor University
- Kings Academy
