Meet one of those leaders, Constantine Prokhorov.
I was raised in a non-Christian home in Kazakhstan. While studying history in college, I came to Christ and felt called to pursue theology.
I trained at Odessa Theological Seminary (OTS) in Ukraine. Growing up under Communism gives you a genuine appreciation for the freedom to study theology. I remember how diligently my classmates and I studied those four years. I credit my alma mater and its professors for my success in ministry and teaching. Since graduating with my Bachelor of Theology degree in 1997, God led me and my family on an incredible journey back to Kazakhstan. There theological professors are in great demand. I taught at five different seminaries and earned my PhD.
Today I live in Russia with my wife and three children where I dedicate most of my time to teaching, preaching and writing. I have authored several books and articles and was awarded second prize for the “Golden Pen of Russia,” a Russian national literature award, in 2008. Through my ministry, the Kingdom is being multiplied. I give all the glory and praise to God for this talent He has given me. I am filled with deep appreciation and thankfulness for the staff, faculty and sponsors of OTS who have helped shape me into the minister and teacher I am today. Thank you and God bless!
We are checking in with our partner schools in Ukraine and getting updates from them regularly. Please join us in unceasing prayer for these schools and the Church. We also pray for our brother Taras Dyatlik, Overseas Council’s Regional Director for Euro-Asia, and his family. We pray they sense the Lord’s presence, and may He continue using them mightily to reach out to people during this difficult and complicated time in their region.
