NOVOSIBIRSK (RUSSIA) - A group of pastors and church leaders are presently going trhough training in the Covenant Church of Novosibirsk. Over the course of seven weeks this group of leaders absorb the foundations of faith during classes which are led by apostle Carl Vincent and his wife pastor Joyce. Pastor Carl has been in ministry for over 40 years and he has taken part in planting dozens of churches. As a minister, he was raised by the famous apostle Ken Sumrall.
In the middle of the 90’s, pastor Carl spent five years in Novosibirsk helping pastor Vitaly Maksimyuk put a foundation for the church and raise a team of leaders. Today, 15 years later, he returned to impart his experience and apostolic view to the new generation of leaders who are to develop ministry in Siberia.
Amazing presence of God, deep knowledge and fundamental understanding of the basic principles given in Scriptures, is the blessing which the Holy Spirit pours into our hearts every day. Classes are held in an intensive format: from 7:00 am to 11:00 am five days a week. Eighty-five students made changes in their plans and committed their time to get deeper into God’s Word for five more weeks, and to receive the anointing from the spiritual father and teacher of apostles.
Many times God spoke about the revival which will cover Russia and spread all over the world. And we believe that our purpose is to prepare enough pastors and leaders who are capable of accepting apostolic vision and becoming a channel for fulfilling God’s plan for our country. Pray for our team so that the Holy Spirit does His work in our hearts, deepening our knowledge about Him, and broadening our hearts to be able to accept many people who will return to the path of Truth.
