“Russell was always an unassuming person, but a very positive and plain preacher,
yet never dogmatic. His sermons revealed his strong Christian convictions. That,
plus his quiet but strong concern for his people, was at the heart of his effective
ministry of 36 years. He had a great ability to sum up a situation, and make a sensible
judgement. He did not speak much at Presbytery and Assembly meetings, but he
was always listened to.” (from Obit.)

“John was the first National Council of Churches Chaplain to Auckland University,
from 1981 until 1989. John made a distinguished contribution to the work of the
Chaplains, among both the staff and students. During this time he was also able to
take study leave at Cambridge, where his Father had also studied.
John was a loyal and active member of the presbyteries in which he served, as well
as of several Assembly Committees, including the Church Worship Committee and
Church Architecture Committee. More recently he co-convened the Committee on
Subordinate Standards and chaired the Church Service Society.
John was straightforward and honest even in his disagreements, a man who valued
integrity very much. He was sure of the Gospel but the enemy of ‘obvious, simple
and wrong’ solutions to challenges to the life of faith and the Church. He saw
himself as part of the succession of the Reformed Church of Calvin and his followers.
This meant a firm belief in the sovereignty of God, taking seriously the unofficial
motto of the Calvinist reformers, semper reformanda : ‘always in a state of reformation’.
It was to this end that John devoted his work as preacher, pastor and thinker.”
