Russell C. Sullivan, Jr.

Pastor

Russell Sullivan is the Pastor at Pine Street. He joined the staff in 2005. Russell has held pastoral positions in South Carolina, Illinois, and Hartsville, Pennsylvania. He received a Doctor of Ministry from Columbia Theological Seminary, a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary, and a Bachelor of Arts from the College of Charleston. Russell has special interests in teaching, adult faith formation, and interfaith and Jewish-Christian dialogue.

“Pine Street is a unique Presbyterian Church in that it celebrates weekly the Lord’s Supper. We encounter Christ in Word and Sacrament, and I do believe that this encounter forms us into the kind of community the world needs, a community that transcends ideology and partisanship to be the people of God for the world God loves.”

Russell can be reached at (717) 238-9304, ext. 101 or rsullivan@pinestreet.org.
