At a special congregational meeting on Sunday morning January 25th the congregation voted to call Russ Hawkins as Immanuel’s Pastor. Join us in welcoming Russ as the sixth pastor of Immanuel Bible Church since the church was founded in 1950.
Russ received his Master of Divinity from Southern Seminary in Louisville Kentucky. He previously served as a teacher at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Billings Montana and a Teacher/Lay Pastor at Ninth and O Baptist Church in Louisville Kentucky until Russ, his wife JaLynn and their four children moved from Louisville to Bellingham in 2013. For the past year he has taught the Gospel of John here at Immanuel.
Russ will be transitioning into his Pastoral duties as he finishes up his duties with his current position. We have benefited from Russ’ preaching over the last month. Join us as he continues to preach the word on Sunday mornings.
