Russell Hylton grew up in the state of Ohio where his parents continue to serve as Pastors in the Akron, OH area.  At the eight of eight, he receive Christ as his personal Savior. At age 15 he felt a very specific call to the ministry and began preparing for that calling. At age 16 he was baptized in the Holy Ghost and preached his first message. 

At age 20, he married his childhood sweetheart, Beverly, who also grew up in a pastor's home and together they embarked into full-time ministry as youth pastors and then State Youth Directors for the Pentecostal Church of God.  In 1999, God led Russell and Beverly to Indianapolis, IN to serve as the Lead Pastors for Bethel Family Worship Center. 

For the past 23 years, they've experienced the grace of God in the expansion of Bethel Family Worship Center as a multi-cultural and a multi-generational church that is "Maturing in Christ & Reaching in Love."  With a personal mandate to raise up spiritual sons and daughters, Russell and Beverly have an apostolic voice that is impacting leaders. 

Russell and Beverly are blessed to have one daughter, Kaitlyn Coffin, who serves as Worship Pastor at BFWC, a wonderful son-in-law, Ethan Coffin, who serves as Executive Pastor at BFWC and two grandchildren, Liam & Eliana. 


Russell Hylton also serves the Pentecostal Church of God as a church coach for the Eastern Region.  As gifted leaders, teachers, and musicians, they minister across the United States and around the world on issues of leadership, spiritual fatherhood/sonship, and church health.  With a commitment to spiritual alignment and authority, they are able to transcend ethnic barriers, denominational differences, and cultural traditions.  They bring a passionate plea for leadership development in our present generation and speak a challenging and life-changing message. Together, Russell & Beverly have launched a leadership network called "LEAGUERSHIP" (A League of Likeminded Leaders) which hosts an annual conference as well as a School of Ministry.
