Russ & Lisa Muse

Russ Muse and his wife Lisa began in ministry over 30 years ago as volunteers at their local church here in Greenville, SC. In 1983, they moved to help plant a church in Athens, GA and served there as Children’s and Student pastors for four years. While those years in Athens were foundational, their hearts always yearned to be back in Greenville. In 1987, they saw their dream fulfilled and moved back to Greenville to become full-time Children’s Pastors, where Russ would eventually become Lead Pastor in 2009 and where Lisa would serve as the Christian School Administrator for 25 years. In March 2014, Russ stepped down as Lead Pastor and began a new church in Greenville called Freedom Church. It has always been very clear to Russ that God was not leading him to build another church, but to build people that would become an integral part of building the Kingdom of God in the Greenville area.


Nate & Kristen Muse

Nate Muse is Assistant Lead Pastor and oversees the Worship, Student and Teaching ministries at Freedom Church.  He graduated from Furman University with a degree in communications. He is married to Kristen Fischer Muse and they have one son Charley.

Romans 2:4 says that it is the kindness of God that leads people to repentance, and we at Freedom Church believe in nothing more than seeing people’s lives radically transformed through genuine encounters with the love of God. We hope that as you check out the Freedom Church website you will get a glimpse of our heart to see lives and families touched by God’s love and to see people begin walking in their redemptive calling.

We invite you to become a part of our Freedom Family.
