Leadership Team

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.


Shepherd, Corwin Russell


Corwin Russell is one of the elders at Northtown church. He is married to Renee and they have two children. Corwin and Renee were raised in the same church in Milwaukee. He was baptized at age twelve and decided to serve God at Northtown since 2000. Corwin says, “I am motivated by the heart of Samuel; his response, his attitude…when the Lord called, he said ‘Here am I, speak Lord, your servant is listening.’  I want to have that same attitude. I want to have the same response that Samuel did!”


Shepherd, Robert Monroe


Robert, also known as Bob, is one of the elders at Northtown church.  Bob works for American General as a life insurance medical underwriter. He is married to Penny and they have two children. Bob grew up in Menomonee Falls and Penny grew up on Oregon. As a youth, Bob’s family did not attend church and it was not until he went off to college that someone shared Jesus Christ with him. He was baptized shortly after college. Bob and Penny met at church in Dallas and the rest is sweet history.  They have two wonderful and faithful adult children.  Bob and Penny have been members of Northtown church for over twenty-one years.  In that time frame, Bob says, “I am starting to realize the depth and breath of God’s grace and love. I am thankful that God is good all the time. He is my rock, always unchanging and in control.” As a servant at Northtown, Bob hopes to keep his eyes fixed on Jesus and will help others do the same!
