Vance and Debbie Russell are an accomplished ministry team spreading the word of the Lord in Central Texas, but also around the globe. They are the founders and vision holders of Arise Ministries International, a governing territorial ministry based in Austin, Texas. By calling, Vance is an apostle/prophet, Debbie a prophet/apostle. They are confirmed by the Lord and commissioned by their covering, Dr. (Bishop) Bill Hamon. Their fifteen years of prophetic and apostolic ministry is marked by clear words of wisdom, knowledge and sharp prophetic direction. They have been raised up by God to dismantle the religious system and establish God's Kingdom by restoring passion to the body of Christ. Their apostolic and prophetic mantle and keen insight into the heart of Father God is bringing healing, restoration and deliverance to many in the church. Internationally recognized as an apostle,Vance Russell was invited to join the ICA in 2008.


Under the umbrella of Arise Ministries International, the Russell’s have established and serve as the Senior Pastors of Arise Christian Fellowship, a Christian International Apostolic Network Church under the leadership of Bishop Bill Hamon. In addition, the Lord is currently expanding their tent stakes into the UK where an AMI church satellite is being established as well as into San Antonio, Texas where weekly services have been established to bring prophetic ministry to many who are hungry for the word of the Lord.


Vance Russell published his first book, "Victory at the Gates", in April 2009. It is already an international success, bringing fresh revelation for today regarding the power of God's historic truth regarding spiritual gates. Vance and Debbie are now collaborating on a new book, "The Omega Church", which should be available in the first half of 2010.


Vance and Debbie live in Austin, Texas. They have a daughter, Dana and a son, Ryan who both work in the administrative area of their ministry. They also have a grandson, Noah, who is a blessing and delight to them.
