Minister Charles Russell was born and raised in Daytona Beach FL. Mentored under Elder John H Lawson, he has been instilled with the True Gospel and tools to evangelize, preach, and teach the Word of God. Charles Russell has been working directly with troubled youth as a counselor for 7 years and has a plethora of experience communicating the word of God to children and adults. During his employment as a Juvenile Detention Officer at the Volusia Regional Juvenile Detention Center, his gift with engaging youth would be revealed.
His ministry began after he was baptized in the name of Jesus and filled with the Holy Ghost. He came to the realization that the gift of teaching that he utilized to mentor youth would become the rudiment of his ministry.
Minister Charles Russell currently teaches bible classes at a Youth Respite Shelter for runaway youth and at risk teens and has baptized several of them. He has established Cries In The Wild Ministries and teaches online Bible Classes with hopes of opening his own youth program using the Holy Scriptures as a means to mentor.
With a strong zeal for study and mentoring, he is truly an effective minister and he is now walking into his true calling as a Pastor and Teacher.
Felecia Russell was born and raised in Daytona Beach FL. She always had an internal feeling that she had a purpose and that there was a God. Growing up without her father in the household, Felecia had to grow up at a faster rate then her peers to assist her mother with her 3 siblings. Her mother had to work strenuous hours which caused Felecia to have to help watch her younger siblings. It was here where The LORD was instilling attributes in her that would later contribute to the ministry she would be called to.
At the age of 18, Felecia would meet her future husband Charles Russell. Years later her husband would be led to a church where he would filled with the Holy Spirit and she soon followed suit. This church was Apostolic Faith Temple. The powerful sermon of Elder John H Lawson would prick her heart which would eventually lead to her being filled with the precious Holy Spirit. Soon she began to notice certain gifts of The Spirit being revealed through her like healing, prophetic dreams, and interpretation of tongues. She would then have the opportunity to heal her family member who at the time was non responsive in the hospital. She is now boldly operating in the gifts and her husband is currently Pastoring and Evangelizing in the inner city of Daytona Beach.
