Who Are We?
We are Independent Baptist missionaries to the people of Siberia. We made our first trip to Siberia in December of 2009 and after obtaining residency, we returned in September of 2010 to begin our full-time ministry. We are currently serving in the city of Krasnoyarsk under the mentorship of veteran missionaries while we learn the language and culture of the Russian people. While in Krasnoyarsk, we are actively taking part in the ministry of an established local church and it’s ministries.

Why Are We Here?
According to recent statistics, in the Russian Federation there are 40 indigenous people groups inhabiting Northern Siberia and the Far East of Russia. This includes such peoples as the Aleutians, Dolgan, Koryak, Mansi, Nanai, Nenets, Saami, Selkup, Khanty, Chukchi, Evenks and Inuits. These smaller people groups total about 244,000 in population. However, the two largest people groups, Komi and Yakuts, combine for a population of more than 400,000. Many of these have never had a Gospel witness of any kind.
