Areas Of Success And Opportunity For Slavic Churches In America


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.

  1. Bogdan these are some interesting statistics. I was just recently at the Gospel Coalition World Missions Conference and David Platt said that the 6,000 or so people groups that are still considered “unevangelized” are difficult and dangerous to reach. Maybe the Slavic church should start thinking about how they can reach those unreached people groups. Check out they have statistics about every country on earth and rate them by how reached they are with the gospel.
