MTR INternational exists to multiply churches among Russian speaking people.

MTR International, a ministry of Mission to Russia, began its church planting mission with its first church plant in Kostroma, Russia. Today the church in Kostroma is a mature congregation that continues to reach out to its community and raise up godly men and women for Christian service. In 2016, we embarked upon a new venture, Vision 20/20, whereby we committed to plant 6 new churches by the year 2020. Currently we are involved in planting three new churches in Belarus. We are also in the formative stages of planting two new churches in Russia, which are set to launch in 2019. Will you join us as we seek to advance the kingdom through planting churches?


We strive is to take the Gospel message of forgiveness, love, and salvation to people living in the former Soviet Union

and teach them that eternal life is available only through faith in Jesus Christ.
