TEAM STRATEGY

The former Soviet Union is literally a gold mine of opportunities. There are so many cities, villages and ethnic groups that have not been touched by the gospel. There is one evangelical church for every 37,000 people and nearly half of the churches that exist have no pastor. It is the desire of WorldVenture to provide whatever assistance possible to mobilize the Russian church. There is a vision for this generation to enter these spiritual gold fields and to multiply the treasures there.
