Twenty-seven years ago, the Soviet Union collapsed. That means an entire generation has grown up with no memory of life under communism. Tragically, the spiritual vacuum created by seven decades of official atheism remains. The upcoming generation is being lured by many ungodly influences, including materialism, false religions, drug and alcohol addiction, sexual immorality, human trafficking, organized crime, and dangerous cults. The challenges are different, but the overwhelming spiritual need is just as intense.
Through your ongoing prayers and generous support, you have helped equip the church for their great task!
Through your gifts, you fund the training of a fresh crop of thousands of brave biblical leaders who are revolutionizing the advance of Christ’s kingdom in the former USSR. This occurs through the Slavic Gospel Association’s support of four strategic seminaries: Irpen Biblical Seminary in Ukraine, Novosibirsk Biblical-Theological Seminary in Russia, Minsk Theological Seminary in Belarus, and Almaty Bible Institute in Kazakhstan.
Together, these biblically sound schools are preparing the next generation of men to serve as pastors, missionaries, and church planters, women for children’s and women’s ministry, and urgently needed worship and church music leaders.
Here are a few key developments over the past year that you helped make possible:
