Meet the Team
Dr. Domenic Ruso (Dom) is founder & lead pastor of The 180, a new church plant in the greater Montreal area which is rethinking how Christianity must grapple with emerging secular culture. Having pastored two larger churches in Ontario Canada, Dom and his wife Bev sensed God calling them to step out in faith and head to the least reached area of North America, Montreal Quebec.
Woodside has been praying and supporting Dom and Bev from the beginning and we are already seeing exciting open doors as a sign of God's favor in this new and important church plant among some of the least reached people. Dom's Ph.D. in Historical Theology also helps him to navigate complex religious challenges within the Roman Catholic and Protestant landscape of Quebec which is something the church must learn to revisit as a way of moving forward in dialoguing with other religions as well.
Dom believes that God is at work raising up a new generation of people tired of ‘playing’ church. Many are ready to think more deeply about Jesus, His Kingdom and His call to discipleship, making it an exciting time to be a leader today.
