Pastor Dennis Russo

Associate Pastor


For Ezra had set his heart to study (or seek) the Law of the LORD, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel. Ezra 7:10 (ESV)


I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on Him as long as I live. Psalm 116: 1-2 (ESV)


I would hope that when people remember me, either these two verses would be associated with that memory. For these verses, speaking of the need and completeness of the Word of God and the faithfulness of the God of the Word have been my life. 

Not that there haven’t been detours. I have tried the other paths and found them lacking-BIG TIME. I would hope that by that confession to save some, both time and trouble. The ancient path of God and His Word is the only path to real safety and significance.


Things I love in addition to reading and talking about God and His Word:

Hiking (or just walking),

just about any outdoors,

sipping coffee,

really good iced tea,

music (all kinds of good music),

snacking with friends,

just being with my wife (Lisa)

Our family came to First Baptist Church in the year 2005(about), after being in many other churches. We immediately found our home here!


Family Members include:


Chris(Son) and Jessie (Daughter-in-law), Nathanial  (Grandson), Samuel (Grandson)


Three sister-in-laws who are more like sisters than “in-laws”


Other Incidentals:

Medical School 1982

Seminary 1997

Conservative Baptist Association NE Ordination 2008

I love the title “Associate Pastor” because I love to associate with our Pastor Wayne, and hope to support and compliment the ministry here in any way I can!
