Freedom Church

Meet Our Team

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.
