Multiplying Churches


Multiplying Churches

We landed in Moscow, and Ginny and I didn’t know what we were going to be doing. We found ourselves in a group of about seven people heading to the city of Kostroma. We had never heard of Kostroma, but we were told it was about 250 miles northeast of Moscow. So, in late May of 1992, we found ourselves in this city of 250,000 people along the Volga River— the city that, unbeknownst to us, would soon become our home.

Miracle in Russia is now available on


Mission to Russia exists to
multiply churches.

MTR planted and supports Kostroma Christian Church and the Christian Academy within.  We also partner with two church plants in Belarus. Keeping Christ at the center of all we do, we are prayerfully striving to multiply churches in Russia through partnering with Russian leaders, to accomplish winning lost souls to the Lord.


MTR's mission is grounded in Christian values

•    God of the Bible, is our Father and Creator.

•    His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ is the one and only Savior of mankind. 

•    Jesus Christ is Lord of everyone and all creation.

•    The Holy Spirit is a gift from God through faith, repentance, and baptism. 

•    The Bible, the fully inspired Word of God, is the final authority on all matters of faith and practice.


The purpose of MTR is to take the Gospel message of forgiveness, love, and salvation to people living in the former Soviet Union and teach them that eternal life is available only through faith in Jesus Christ.
