Describe the need affecting the community.

A person, who seeks to become a pastor in Russia, or anywhere in all of Eurasia, faces a huge uphill struggle. Answering the call of God to pastoral ministry often means stepping outside the cultural norm in a community that has been agnostic. Answering the call of God to pastoral ministry often means a large decline in earnings and a large sacrifice to attend the Seminary.

How will this Advance project help to address the need?

This project is an annual campaign to raise financial support, so that a student can respond to the call from God for pastoral ministry.

Describe the primary goal of the project.
