As a youth, Stephen Russell was politically active in the pro-life movement. As he grew in his understanding of life and Christ, he recognized that speaking to the heart was more effective than changing political policy.

Stephen Russell earned a degree in European Studies at George Mason University (1986-1988), and an M.A. in Church History and Theology at Wheaton Graduate School (1989). His voluntary service experiences include two summers in Germany (1978, 1982), Choice Books (1981), and a halfway house for parolees (1980). He taught in Christian schools for five years and worked at Choice Books for seventeen years.
