The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord (Luke 4:18-19)

What does SRS do? 

Collaborate with God's Spirit to renew the Russian speaking world of 275 million people by...

  • ...Training men and women to share the Word of God in the highways and byways of the former Soviet Union.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    reviving the soul. (Psalm 19:7)
  • ...Calling men and women to form and raise godly families in a culture where there are almost none.

No, for I have chosen him, that he may charge his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice; so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what he has promised him. (Genesis 18:19)
  • ...Equipping Eurasian men as church planters to fulfill Christ's calling of healing the world. 

When thou sendest forth thy Spirit, they are created; and thou renewest the face of the ground. (Psalm 104:30)

What was SRS' need for #RenewRussia2016?

As hopefully you are aware, the Lord continues to bless the spreading of His Word and kingdom in the Slavic world of the former Soviet Union.

Late this spring, Blake and Cathy Purcell and three other ministers of the Gospel traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia to help some of the Eurasian pastors renew their vows and form their own independent presbytery in Eurasia.

From then on SRS has been serving at the request and in full partnership of this new denomination, the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Eurasia!

The Board of SRS designated May through July as #RenewRussia2016. You can still view our quick report that detailed our needs and opportunities for getting involved.


Again, we would like to thank all donors during #RenewRussia2016 and remember — you will receive a Slavic Reformation Society coffee mug by mail! We are still accepting donations. You may make donations by going to or sending a check by mail to SRS, PO Box 694, Pella, Iowa 50219.

May God Bless your kind consideration of this need.
