Seminary Students: Doers of the Word

March 4 2016

Editor’s note: This month, we will feature the ministry of Moscow Evangelical Christian Seminary (MECS). OMS began work in Russia in 1993, sending short-term teams with CoMission. OMS inaugurated MECS in September 1993.

The students of MECS are special … and are becoming the leaders of the church and the nation. Look for testimonies of the students in the coming weeks...


The students of the Moscow Seminary take Jesus’ charge, “You are My friends if you do what I command you” (John 15:14) literally.

The Bible teaches, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans in their distress” (James 1:27). And so, not only do our students and graduates reach out to orphans with the Gospel in state orphanages, but they also get kids out of orphanages by adopting orphans into their own families.

Jesus appeals, “I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in” (Matthew 25:35). And so, not only do our students preach the Gospel to the homeless, but they also feed them.

There are 234 student-ministers studying at the seminary “to prove themselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers” (James 1:22). They need your help to continue.
