in Russia to grow in faith, hope and love

We have changed our name! For the last decade we have been the Institute of Theology and Christian Ministry (ITCM) in St Petersburg, Russia. We continue to train, in Russian, through ITCM, Russian servants to minister in Russia , but we have enlarged our mission. Not only do we intend, by God's grace, to teach leaders but we also try to reach those seeking God in Russia through our Russian Bible School and, through our singing program, newsletters and conferences, to edify the scattered congregations throughout Russia, in planting and watering. We are the Christian Resource Center Russia.
grace and peace,

NEWS UPDATES

Fall 2016
 
LEARN Russian Bible School (RBS)
 
The number of home Bible study groups begun by RBS students has grown to eighteen. Our student Nonna Petrovna Aleshina from Volgograd (former Stalingrad) hosts Bible study meetings at her home using RBS materials. This month she wrote an article about evangelism and it was published in the local newspaper.

GROW Encouraging Russian congregations
 
CRCRussia is inviting sisters from the Russian-speaking congregations to St.Petersburg for a seminar entitled “Finding Hope”. Dana Grubb will conduct the seminar November 4-6, 2016. Three of her books, which were translated and published by EEM (Eastern European Mission), will be used during the seminar. Each participant will receive a set of them to use in their own preparation and teaching of others.

TEACH Institute of Theology and Christian ministry (ITCM)
 
On November 21 ITCM launches an online course nationwide on the letter of Hebrews. Brother James Thompson, professor of ACU, who has written commentaries on Hebrews will be the teacher. He taught this same course in St.Petersburg in 2008. Our students are ministers, preachers and teachers, who are eager to grow further in their knowledge and experience.
