As International Director of Christ for all Nations (the Evangelistic Ministry of Reinhard Bonnke and Daniel Kolenda), Russell Benson’s passion for world evangelism is only surpassed by his unequivocal thirst for Jesus Himself. Born in Long Island, New York and raised in Port Charlotte, Florida, Russell found himself in the midst of a revival from an early age.
After he graduated from the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry (in Pensacola, Florida), Russell then began pioneering churches. He quickly realized that the forging fire in his heart was to see the “equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry.”
In his current role with CfaN, he oversees the international operations for the ministry, and also ministers the Good News throughout the world. Russell also serves as the Executive Pastor of Nations Church in Orlando, Florida.
Married over twenty years, Russell and Brooke make their home in Orlando, with their three children, Micah, Nathaniel, and Lucas.
