Susan & Russ Fochler
Russ and Susan Fochler share a passion to see the world transformed by God’s love. They have pursued unusual and creative ways to help those outside the church encounter God’s presence, and seek to equip God’s people to do the same.
Susan leads the Heart Trek inner healing ministry at Blazing Fire, and desires to help people live whole, fulfilled lives from the core of their being and to experience God’s presence in increasingly intimate ways. Susan also oversees the Worship Intercession team. She enjoys “quiet times”, arts and crafts, laughing, and gardening.
Russ is generally the one who answers or responds to calls to the church phone. Russ also oversees and helps develop home groups for Blazing Fire. He enjoys making puns, coffee, hiking at Lake Chabot, and good hugs.
Russ and Susan have been married since 1979, and have three adult children – and one grandchild.
