Off to Russia

Lord willing, I am headed back to St. Petersburg, Russia on Friday.  I am very excited to return and once again participate in pastoral training with some Russian brothers in Christ.

I am looking forward to seeing friends I made back in 2009, as well as making new ones.  I am also very excited to be taking one our elders to share our ministry foundations for Biblical counseling and glean insights from the church in Russia.

The specific class I will be teaching is called “Preaching Difficult Topics” and is designed to help work through difficult texts and touchy subjects.  Please pray that I would be able to communicate effectively, especially with a translator.

It is my hope that God will be glorifiied through our trip and the church in and around St. Petersburg will be better equipped as a result.  

I will do my best to post updates here for the church to stay informed.

 

Ryan serves as the Senior Pastor of Green Pond Bible Chapel in Rockaway, New Jersey. He is married with four children.
