Join Us in Online Prayer This Saturday for Potentially Perilous SRS Initiative
Jesus said in Matthew 10:16, Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.
SRS Pastors Evgeniy Kruzhkov and Oleg Volkov feel called to do just what the Lord said, to be sent out as sheep among wolves.
September 29 - October 5, they are going to teach our first ever intensive seminary course in a closed country. Oleg will teach on personal discipleship, and Evgeniy on Covenant Theology from Genesis.
For hosting or participating in this secret intensive course-- they and the national students could be arrested, fined 50 times their monthly salary, and/or given a 3-year prison term.
Therefore, the Lord bids them and us to be wise, and the first step of wisdom is to petition the Lord Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts on their behalf.
Please pray with us that God would...
Grant them boldness: Ephesian 6:18-20
Grant them clarity: Colossians 4:2-4
Make this a true door for the word, that is that the enemy the Devil, nor his evil servants, would be able to hinder the Word in anyway: Colossian 2:3
Provide for their and the students' deliverance from all evil:
Write us now if you would like to be invited to this vital online prayer meeting on Saturday, September 19th, 10 AM Central Daylight Time. You will receive a Webex log-in invitation. Please log-in by 9:30 AM that morning.
We will also pray for funding for the Fall Intensive in St. Pete, October 26 - November 7, where our students will join the former president of Covenant Seminary, Bryan Chapell, who will be teaching on preaching. Already the assignments have been given out for that course. Students are to bring an outline of one of their favorite sermons, and read two chapters of his book, Christ-Centered Preaching.
$5,000-$7,000 is needed for all the SRS pastors to be able to participate in this crucial course. Please visit our website to make a donation to help these pastors receive vital training.
We look forward to laboring with you to the glory of God and global victory of the Gospel of Christ!
