And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God . . . (Luke 9:2).

Seeing the lost come to Christ across the lands of Russia . . . that was the burning passion of SGA founder Peter Deyneka, and it remains our burning passion today. Above all, it is the burning passion of the Russian evangelical churches SGA serves, and we are thankful for the opportunity to help them reach their communities for Christ.

SGA connects North American Christians with individual Russian church-planting missionaries, and helps to send them out to targeted regions where they live, work and proclaim the Gospel. They have a tremendous advantage because they already know the language, culture and history of their people. The church planters are selected by their local congregational leadership and are partnered through SGA with sponsoring individuals or churches here in North America. In addition, many Sunday school classes and adult Bible fellowships have discovered the tremendous blessing of sponsoring a national church planter in Russia.

Church planter sponsors receive their missionary’s name, family information, ministry location and a family photo when possible. SGA helps facilitate communication between the missionary and sponsors, to encourage prayer and so that all may rejoice in what God is doing across the former Soviet Union. The backgrounds of the missionaries are varied, and their dedication is such that many of them are ministering in three to five locations simultaneously. A significant number also have ministries to prison inmates, drug addicts and orphan children. Many former prisoners who have been gloriously saved have moved on to become church planters themselves.

Partial sponsorships can begin for as little as $35 per month. Full sponsorships are also available. If you’d like to find out more how you can help sponsor a faithful missionary pastor in Russia or her neighboring countries, call SGA at 1-800-242-5350. Our office switchboard is open Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Central Time.

The Bold Witness of a Transformed Life

I want to tell you about Ludmila, who was the first believer in village of Oktyom. She was in a difficult marriage where her husband beat and neglected her terribly. She literally despaired of life itself. But she was not alone. For in the village of Moxogollokh, where Pastor Valery had planted the first church in Yakutia and where young Stas had come to faith, another woman was being moved by God.

Encouraging the Hearts of Faithful Missionary Pastors

With my wife Elena, I have spent the past 10 days in many meetings, conversations, and storing up many impressions. In the beginning of our trip, we were able to visit SGA-sponsored missionary pastor Vyacheslav Tkachenko in Bezenchuk. This brother is filled with radiance and joy! Every day, he asks God to fill him with the joy of the Lord. You smile just because you are around him.

Citizenship in Heaven for a Youth Without a Country

The Lord has led us in a wonderful way in our ministry to people who have troubled lives. It all began with our ministry to children, and that eventually led to organizing an introductory course to the Christian faith for their parents. We have led missions trips to neighboring Mongolia, and are involved in camps for children and youth. Seven young people attending our church have recently repented and trusted in the Lord Jesus for salvation.
