Also, together we openly sought answers to actual questions concerning the growth of churches. And one more important goal, which was before us, as before the organizers, is to unite in prayer the people who are burning with the idea of spreading the Gospel "to the ends of the earth". I believe that we managed to achieve our goals”, — said Nikolai Tolpinsky, an evangelist and minister of the Church of Christ the Savior, the ideological inspirer of the forum"The Voice of the Church ".
