Leadership Team

Rev. Cheryl Russell,
Senior Minister

Hello!  I am so honored to be a part of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Noblesville community.  I began my ministry here in April 2018 and have found this to be a welcoming place with passionate people.  I can’t wait to discover where God will lead this congregation as we continue to follow Christ together. I grew up in Central Indiana and am thrilled to be back in the Hoosier State.  I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and I taught middle school for 5 years (three of those years in Baton Rouge, LA).  I received my Masters of Divinity from Vanderbilt Divinity School in 2013 and was ordained into the Christian Ministry through the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination that same year.

In my spare time, I enjoy being the Cool Aunt to my two nieces and one nephew.  I like to golf, read mystery novels, I love to travel and spend quality time with my friends and family.  Also, I’m a huge Indianapolis Colts fans and love going to games! This is an exciting time for First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and I look forward to the work we will do together!

Blessings, Pastor Cheryl
