PAM: Prepare and Minister
Serving in Russia
We were both born on the outskirts of the USSR in Moscow, Russia during the perestroika time. Both of us grew up in Christian homes and P is a part of a family heritage of ministers in the sixth generation, with his great-grandfather spending time in prison for his faith during Stalin period of USSR.
P accepted Christ in his teenage years and A bit earlier. P got a degree in Business management and worked for several years in the aviation business buying airplanes for his company. A became an attorney and worked in Moscow as well. In 2009 we got married as we were finishing up college and starting our business carriers.
From our youth we have both been always heavily involved in all sorts of ministries, starting from teaching kids Sunday school, singing in a choir and ending up ordained as a deacon and preaching sermons and leading worships services. Our main passion during our years of ministry as a family from 2009-2017 was an outreach English ministry in Moscow, where we discipled native English speaking people that needed spiritual growth and at the same time we evangelized those that would come to learn English. Seeing people come to know the Lord was the most magnificent thing we experienced in our lives.
After leading a ministry for more than 8,5 years, P felt the call to full-time ministry and the need for Theological training. God has provided the opportunity to study at Dallas Theological Seminary and P should graduate with a Master of Theology (ThM) degree this upcoming December 2022.
P & A both have a heart for discipleship and sharing the Gospel with those that do not know Christ. We are planning to be involved in several various areas of ministry: 1) Evangelism and discipleship with Russian speaking people and German locals; 2) Giftedness coaching and training in Europe; 3) Leadership development and training in Europe.
God blessed us with four children, three girls R (2011), A (2016), E (2018) and a son M (2021), which are probably our greatest accomplishments in life.
