Russ & Chelle

Russ & Chelle have been married for 15 years. They have been serving in Stapleford for over a decade, and share a passion to see God’s people released in worship. Russ & Chelle carry a joint anointing in leading worship. They live in Long Eaton with their two dogs, Ollie and Charlie.

Russ is an accredited AoG minister, whose background is working in supported housing for homeless men. As well as worship, he carries a passion for social justice. His first paid role at the Haven was to set up our various community projects and run the community side of the centre. In 2021 Russ was appointed as senior minister and now leads our fellowship.

Michelle is an incredibly gifted and anointed musician who heads our worship team. She is passionate about the arts and has written and produced many musical productions which carry the heartbeat of God for the lost. She is a professional musician and teaches keyboard, piano and singing up to Diploma level. Michelle loves the restorative power of music and has a heart to encourage others.


Peter leads our SuperTots group and serves the church leadership. Born in Birmingham he has had an incredible life, living all over the world, yet he still has a love for the “Villa”. Peter is a big man with a bigger heart, it is his desire to see children released in play, and to connect with mothers, fathers and other carers.

He is also an AoG accredited minister.
