Theological Seminary and Church Planting Network

Equipping the Russian-speaking church to reach the Russian-speaking world: Formerly known as the Slavic Reformation Society, we provide free seminary education and lifelong mentoring to resource-challenged church planters serving in spiritually-impoverished regions of the largest country in the world: Russian cities and towns where there is virtually no biblical church presence. Our instructional model is based on two-week intensive courses meeting in St. Petersburg in the Fall and Spring. This means that our students don’t need to move away from where they are planting churches. Thanks to the generosity of people like you, we provide this high-quality on-the-job training at no charge.

God's transforming work has gone on through HopeRussia as we…


train nationals in Gospel ministry



and plant churches.


Through this, Christ...


rebuilds lives and families



and cares for the needy.

The Vision

   A movement of individuals, families and churches committed to seeing the Gospel and the Church of Jesus Christ planted and growing in the Russian speaking world numbering 275 million in Eurasia.

  Small beginnings have led to churches and auxiliary ministries that are equipping believers with tools to teach others also!


The Vision

The Churches

   The planting of local churches is our first priority. In the  context of a biblical church structure effective preaching and growth in Christ can take place. 

   We prioritize the raising up of both elders to lead these churches and godly men to lead their families.

The Stories

"Behold, I am doing a new thing… I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert… to give drink to my chosen people, the people whom I formed for myself that they might declare my praise."

Hope Russia focuses on training men for the ministry, but stretches far beyond that border to minister to wives, daughters, sons, widows, orphans, and all that their lives touch.
