SEND Russia’s goal is to work alongside churches in Russia to help them reach beyond their borders in order to establish healthy, reproducing churches.
The aim is to see healthy, reproducing churches that will spread the good news of Jesus among the unreached in Russia.
The need, like the size of Russia, is vast:
- Less than 0.2% evangelical Christians across Russia
- Regions with only one church for every 110,000 people
- Foreign students from unreached cultures
- 90 ethnic unreached people groups
- Over 1 million Tibetan Buddhists
SEND Russia teams are in several areas of Russia, all working towards mobilizing God’s people, engaging the unreached, and establishing reproducing churches…
MOBILIZE God’s People…
SEND Russia strives to equip and empower local churches in Russia to make disciples of all nations, to bring His glory to all people, and to serve His global purpose.
ENGAGE the Unreached…
Russia has vast unreached regions, areas of society, and 90 ethnic groups where there is no established church. SEND Russia partners with the Russian church to plant churches in unreached regions and among unreached people groups, such as Tibetan Buddhists and other distinct ethnic groups. SEND Russia also aim to help the Russian church reach into areas of society that have no gospel witness.
ESTABLISH Reproducing Churches…
SEND Russia works with local churches and leaders to equip, train, and encourage them toward effective outreach and discipleship.
In order to see the gospel spread and reproducing churches planted, in the next five years SEND Russia will…
- Provide leaders with theological training
- Deploy new teams to several unreached people groups
- Equip believers in church planting and cross-cultural ministries
- Reach youth through camping ministries
- Disciple believers and strengthen families
- Teach English for evangelism
- Engage with foreign students on college campuses
- Work with teen orphans who are aging out of the system
Pray that the gospel penetrates and spreads to all unreached peoples, regions, and levels of society in Russia.
Pray about how you can be involved in what God is doing to build His church in Russia among the unreached.
