Spreading the Hope of Christ throughout Russia

"We want to see the Russian people flourishing in Christ in their work, relationships, and lives. And for that, they need leaders who are grounded in God’s Word and trained in effective ministry.

RLM works to equip indigenous Russian leaders to bring the gospel to their churches and communities. Through opportunities like leadership training, ministry resources, and the Moscow Theological Seminary, we are equipping leaders to spread the hope of Christ throughout Russia."

—Tom MacAdam, Executive Director
