True North Man

Aug 17, 2021

How do you stay balanced when life throws you a curveball? Brian was left hopeless when his marriage broke up a decade ago. Filled with shame, forsaken, and terrified to lose everything, it wasn’t easy for him to bounce back. However, he did. Having experienced a deep transformation, a renewed faith, things changed within and around him for the better.

Dr. Brian Russell is an author, a professor of Biblical Studies, and a spiritual transformational coach. He is the founder of Deep Dive Spirituality a coaching program for pastors and spiritual leaders. His forthcoming book, Centering Prayer talks about silent, solitary practices before God that can turn your life around. He is also the host of The Deep Dive Spirituality Conversations podcast. Reading the Bible for the last 37 years, turned him into more than a master in it.
