“The world in the 21stcentury is in desperate need of Christians committed to being present in every moment; who are attempting to see beneath the surface and listen through the noise for the presence of God; and who are learning to lean back into their “spiritual hearts” in order to lean forward with God into this messy, beautiful, complicated world.” – Rev. Pennington-Russell

She is a graduate of the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL, and Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in Mill Valley, CA. An international preacher and speaker, her messages have been featured on the television broadcast 30 Good Minutes, Day-1 Radio and at the national Festival of Homiletics.

Julie is married to Tim Pennington-Russell, a techie, poet and bass player. They are the parents of two millennials, Taylor and Lucy. Julie loves the poetry of Mary Oliver and William Stafford and exploring the museums and galleries in Washington, DC. She’s also a sucker for Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk. Mostly, Julie loves seeing the surprise and relief in a person’s eye when he or she experiences the love and welcome of Christ. She is crazy about the Church (warts and all) and loves to lean with the people of God toward the big-picture kingdom of God’s adventures.
