Bro. Russell Cobb is married to his wife, Cindy, since 1983. They have three boys Cody, Brandon, & Lance.
He and his family spent 18 years on the mission field, starting many churches and Bible schools in Central and South America.
He ministered to over 22 nationalities before returning to the United States in 1999 when he took over his dad’s church, Word of Grace.
The new church facility is now located on Monroe Hwy. in Pineville, LA.
Bro. Russell’s vision is to reach the community and the world with the Gospel so lives will be transformed by the power of Jesus Christ.
Acts 20:32 - "And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the "Word of His Grace," which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified." That was his dad, Calvin Cobb's opening message at the dedication of the church on Military Hwy. in 1996.
Many volumes could have been written concerning how the Holy Spirit has continually directed His work at Word of Grace over the past few years.
"Our greatest opportunities are ahead. We are thankful for yesterday, but the governmental key of King Jesus continues to open up tomorrows. My dad went on to his reward on September 29th, 1999. Then, I was set in as pastor on October 28th of that same year. We have not looked back ever since."
