Russell Sparks

Maintenance Supervisor

Bachelor of Music and Worship, Briercrest College

At Horizon Since: March 2015

Russ maintains the facilities and communicates with the students, faculty, and staff about maintenance concerns. He is the contact person for other contractors that are brought in to address maintenance issues. He grew up on the farm, so fixing things has always been part of his life. Russ has worked in automotive maintenance and his wife jokes about their addiction to home renovations.

Russ and his wife, Angela, have four children: Isabelle, Caleb, Jude, and Isaac. Russ loves to play guitar and lead worship. Russ and Angela pastored in Davidson for four years before Russ took on his current role at Horizon. Russ has worked in Youth ministry as well as solo-pastoring in a rural setting, but he is enjoying a season of working primarily with his hands. He is glad to talk to students who need someone to talk to and pray for them.
