Russell McCutcheon has roots in North Carolina. His dad was born in Winston Salem. As he processes what God is doing with him, He sees God’s hand in bringing him to the state where his father was raised, to plant Reconciliation Church. Russell has worked in ministry for fourteen years, with seven of these years being a pastor with Fellowship Memphis. After going through the residency of Fellowship Memphis, Russell pastored their Germantown outpost.
Russell has a B.A. from Nicholls State, an M.A. from Eastern University and an M.Div. from Mid-America Seminary.
God has given Russell a heart for seeing people from all over the world come to know Jesus and, for those who have trusted in Him, to grow in their faith; from spiritual infancy to spiritual maturity.
Russell is married to Latoya, and they have two children, Bria and Zion. Russell and Latoya have traveled to many countries together, training indigenous leaders in disciple making, and they love Jesus’ church and seeing people come to know God and serve Him.
John loves to help people deepen their love for Jesus and increase their impact by helping them discover God’s vision for their lives. At Reconciliation, John's role is to help Russell instill a culture of empowerment and leadership development.
John is the current President of People Launching, a ministry equips Gospel-centered leaders and launches redemptive causes. He is also the co-founder of the Gospel Enneagram.
