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.
