Your support for the Russell Golf Classic is important

1. It honors the Russell family. It’s impossible to
calculate the number of people who have been
positively impacted by Bob Russell’s 40-year ministry
at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY, and
John Russell’s 40-year ministry at Lakeside Christian
Church in Lakeside Park, KY. The Russell School of
Ministry (RSM) is a powerful way to recognize the
faithfulness of this special family and extend their
impact far into the future.

2. Ministry is the heart of what we do at Cincinnati
Christian University (CCU). Bob and John Russell,
and several other members of their extended family,
are graduates of CCU. Since 1924 we have been
inspiring and equipping our students to bear fruit for
the glory of God. We want to make sure that for
years to come CCU will continue to provide the finest
ministry training available.

3. Future leaders need our help. We are recruiting
and teaching students who will preach the gospel
and serve with excellence, leading people to Christ
and planting new churches. The Russell scholarships
will help to keep a top-quality CCU education
affordable for ministry-minded students, and the
RSM endowed chair will help to ensure that our
ministry programs remain on the cutting edge.

Our $2 million goal ($1 M for student scholarships and
$1 M for the endowed ministry chair) is within reach!
With your generous support, this God-sized goal will
become a reality.
