We train national evangelical church planters and mission-minded church leaders for the countries of the former Soviet Union, especially the ones where Islam is the predominant religion. We know from experience that it is an incredibly difficult task to plant churches there. How do you bring the News about grace to those who do not believe in grace? How do you teach sacrificial giving those who have nothing? How do you love people who hate you? How do you sustain a ministry under persistent pressure without breaking?
A church planter encounters a huge amount of organizational, financial, cultural and spiritual obstacles. And like all people, he or she has to fight his or her own weaknesses. However, one thing is for certain: in this environment it is not enough to have a traditional academic theological education. A missionary must be a real man or woman of God - to be a person of integrity, who is not afraid of confrontation, who is able "to stand strong to the storm" and still remain committed to God and one’s family. How does one become such a person?
That is exactly what we about - we teach how to be in Christ. Combining solid Biblical teaching with practical training and mentoring, we create a unique atmosphere conducive for personal growth. Out website can tell you facts about what we believe, what we teach, what we dream about. However, how do I convey what we breathe? How do I convey the transforming power of a unique Christian community?
