Pastor Russell Snyder
Pastor Snyder is an ordained United Pentecostal Church International minister. He was born in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1949. Pastor Snyder grew up in a small town called Lemesa, Texas. As he has said "There ain't nothing in West Texas but tumble weeds and horned toads!" Well, the First UPC of Dalton, GA received an eternal gift out of this dusty little town, Amen.
After graduating from Texas Bible College in 1977, he moved to LeGrange, GA under the leadership of Bishop Hammock. There he met Sister Martha Ann Duvall whom he married May 1971. After several years of evangelism he was elected Pastor on August 21, 1977.
