Here are the areas of success and opportunity for Slavic Churches in America:

Success of being on mission of Slavic Churches:

  • Financial support of overseas missions
  • Financial support of building new church buildings in Russia
  • Providing humanitarian aid to those in need overseas
  • Short term mission trips
  • Live-Stream of church services to Russian speaking people throughout the world

Areas of Opportunity for Slavic Churches: 

  • Most efforts are directed at being on mission in former Slavic countries
  • Very little is done to reach with the gospel, people who live in “Jerusalem,’ aka, U.S.
  • 90% of missionaries are living in Slavic countries
  • 10% of missionaries are in different countries
  • 0% of missionaries are in the U.S.
  • 80% of resources go to fund missionaries in Slavic countries.
  • 20% of resources go to spreading the gospel here in the U.S.
  • Main reason for growth in Slavic churches was due to immigration.
  • Because influx of immigrants ceased, so did the increase of membership.

The above information and statistics were presented by: Вячеслав Михайлович Цвиринько (заместитель Председателя ТОЦЕХБ (http://bit.ly/15bfeGT)

I do not think I have a complete solution for the above opportunities.

But I do believe that there is a part of this solution that needs to be implemented in the Slavic Churches located in America.

Here is what I think all Slavic churches should do in the United States. Click here to read it.
