The goal for a new church plant is to become a healthy spiritual force, reaching its community and beyond. This requires a commitment to training disciples and leaders. We believe this includes systematic training at the local level.
To assist this process we have, at various intervals, established over 300 DVD formatted Bible schools in various countries. The material stays with the local church leaders. Once a Bible school has graduated a class, a new class can begin, as need presents itself. These schools are vital to the spiritual development and life of the local church. We are grateful to International School of Ministry, which has provided us with about 170 hours of dynamic teaching. In addition to this we have developed some of our own.
The primary area of emphasis for church planting and development has been in Ukraine and Israel. Nevertheless, we have had the privilege of using the Bible schools for spiritual training in: Russia, Moldova, Romania, Armenia, Iran, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, China, and Turkey.
In addition to the Bible schools, we partnered in founding the Missionary Training Center with Pastor Valeriy Reshetinskiy in Kiev, Ukraine.
As we witness the fulfillment of Bible prophesy and the Jewish people returning to their homeland in the last days, Israel’s populace has become 20% Russian speaking. Because of our extensive work with Russian-speaking people groups for over 20 years, we began in Israel in 1999 among immigrant Russian Jewish congregations, establishing Bible schools via DVD format. The Bible school program also trains people in Israel using Hebrew, English, and French, as well.
Our focus in Israel is:
We made our first journey into the former Soviet Union in the early 1990’s. Our primary focus quickly became church planting. We have been privileged to participate in seeing 206 new churches planted. Our main source of training has been video formatted Bible Schools established in the local churches.
We have been ministering in Israel for over 20 years and would love to have you join us on one of these life-changing experiences. These tours are complete tours with a Messianic Israeli guide. The tours are usually 10 days in length.
In addition to serving children through orphan care, we provide resources to feed the needy in Israel, especially new immigrants. Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine in 2022 we have been providing resources of food, shelter, and transportation for many among the 6 million Ukrainians displaced within their own borders.
