Enter fields with emerging needs

On December 25, 1991, Soviet President Gorbachev announced his resignation. The Soviet Union Supreme Soviet passed a resolution the next day announced that the Soviet Union ceased to exist, and the founding of the 69th Soviet Union has since officially dissolved into 15 independent countries. From one to fifteen, the political situation has undergone a great change and the people's life has also undergone great changes. More than 70% of the people live below the poverty line due to the unstable economic system from communal ownership to private ownership. A small number of people are richer, the majority of whom are destitute, the government spending plummets and the taxation is heavy. A collapse of the credit system caused a large number of factories to collapse. Prices skyrocketed 1,600 times, depreciating the ruble and withdrawing from the currencies of international transactions, resulting in a long-term economic recession.

Preach the Gospel

However, since the Soviet Union countries, which were closed to the outside for a long time, liberalized their faith, they held a Christian mission in Latvia, one of the independent nations. In 1993, Rev. Zhou Shuhui, founder of the Center, went to attend the ceremony and received God’s calling. As a result, the Global Life Enrichment Center was established in 1995 and also took over the ministry of Chinese churches in Moscow from the center of the Great Commission. Later pastor Yi Ming, Rev. Gao Chongzhi, elder Chen Yingzuo, Rev. Zheng Rongxin, Pastor Li Guoqing and others served in that church.

Educate leaders

In order to build up the local church, so the Global Enrichment Theological Seminary, which the GLEC belongs to, started to offer its first classes in Moscow since 2003 and held the first graduation ceremony in May 2006 at the evangelical camp meeting. Most students are involved in full-time missionary work, so the second and third seminaries are held. In view of the needs of the mission area, the Global Mission Seminary was established in 2011 after the establishment of an independent mission to set up campuses in Moscow, Ekonomy and Bhutan to continue the training for mission work in the area. In 2017, there came the first master's class graduates.

Plant reproducible churches

Since 2006, local graduates from the Theological Seminary have been engaged in shepherding work. At present, four pastors, including Pan Yongxin, Tian Fengqin, Gu Maizhen and Wang Yi, have been established there and there are four full-time preachers. Because of the wonderful works of God, they have attracted people from all over to return to Him. Nowadays there are about 300 Chinese members in the Chinese Church in Moscow. At present, every Sunday has Russian Sunday worship, Sunday worship, workplace Sunday worship, A shopping center Sunday worship, a total of five parties. The vast majority of Russia is divided into seven pastoral districts, from west to east: pastoral district in Moscow, Hazard-Ward pastoral district, Jahr pastures, Novosibirsk pastoral district, Yeca pastoral district, Chita pastoral district and the Far East pastoral district. 2017 Yeca Chinese Christian Church purchase a church building. With its own property, now God's kingdom has further expanded.

Engaged in local cross-cultural ministries

According to official surveys of some Russian residents, about 50% of Russia's population do not believe in any religion and 30% -40% of the population are Orthodox Christians. About 63% of residents in Russia claim to believe Orthodox Church. Even uncivilized Russians are culturally connected with the Orthodox Church. The Chinese Christian Church in Moscow has always had a Russian language hall. According to associates who work in Russian ministries, many in Russia consider themselves Orthodox Christians, but the actual religious life does not exist at all. Many people go to the church once a year and do not have a personal relationship with Christ and most of them are nominal followers, but the Russians like American culture in their bones, if there are missionaries from the United States they are still very receptive.

We bring the abundant life of Jesus Christ into people's life, family,

community, and the world through mission, education and charity.

Since 2001, we have organized the Gospel Camp in Moscow, the first gospel camp, and dozens of people attended it, and now each of them has more than 500 gospel camps. The previous gospel camps, total attendance has more than seven thousand people. The May 1st Gospel Camp meeting has become an important event in the church every year. Many people have come to the faith and got baptized into the church. Taipei's Fellowship of Christ and Christian Entertainers Fellowship all send mission teams to help make each other a wonderful mission partner. There are now meeting places and offices in Moscow, located on Warsaw Avenue, and preacher quarters close to the Grand Central Highway. Expect the Chinese Church to take root in Russia. Russian Sunday services started on July 1 of 2012. Let us evangelize the Russians and enable the second generation of Chinese to continue their faith and pass along to their children and grandchildren.
