Elesea Russo


Elesea’s journey to Youth Director began 3 years ago when she was “just going to fill in for a few weeks.” It’s now a passion and labor of love to minister to students and point them to Christ. Elesea is married to John and when she’s not at summer camp or daring middle-schoolers to eat mystery foods she’s homeschooling their four kids. She holds a Bachelor’s in Mass Communications and Speaking/Interpersonal Communications. Although she has claimed Arizona as home for a long time now, she has southern roots and likes to say “y’all” a whole lot. Some of her favorite things include fictional books, the summer season (Swimming! Ice cream! Vacation!) cooking, and playing games where everyone is yelling.
