He is a former Oklahoma Congressman and Army officer who helped capture Saddam Hussein in Iraq but now Steve Russell has a different title.

He is CEO of JAARS, a global organization that has a mandate to make Bible translation and language development possible, even in the most remote and difficult places on Earth.
