Russ Murphy

Senior Adult Minister

Russ is a Texas Tech graduate, began his church ministry over 48 years ago. After singing and speaking all around the world in the 1980's, Russ joined the staff of IABC in 1989 to serve as their College Minister. The Lord truly blessed his College Ministry more than anyone could have imagined.


In 2006 Russ moved to Nashville TN to further his songwriting career. While there, Russ saw 11 of his songs go to #1 on the National Inspirational Country Music Charts. In 2018 Russ felt the Lord leading him back to IABC to work with their Senior Adults. He considers it a huge blessing to work with these amazing folks, some he has known for over 40 years.


Russ and his wonderful wife, Linda have ministered at prisons, military events and local churches all across our nation. Russ enjoys ministry but the thing that brings him the most joy is being a good husband. By the way, don't challenge Russ to an Andy Griffith Show trivia contest because he is an expert!
