MissionCast #134 – Missouri Volunteers in Voronezh, Russia

For MissionCast, click the picture or one of the links below to view or download the video.


Audrey Phelps, Volunteers in Mission Coordinator, at the Office of Creative Ministries, recently led a volunteers in mission team to Voronezh, Russia.  Voronezh is the site of the only camp for the new and emerging United Methodist Church in Russia.  When the camp was purchased by the church it was in very poor shape.  The Missouri team worked to improves the facilities for use by the church.  There is still a lot of work yet to be done.  If you think your congregation would like to send a team to work on the camp please contact Audrey by calling her at the Office of Creative Ministries (573-474-7155) or emailing her at phelps@umocm.com

We are grateful to Matt Miofsky, pastor of the Gathering UMC, and Mike Wondell, pastor of New Covenant UMC,  who traveled to Voronezh on behalf of the Office of Creative Ministries to scout out the project.  They both are planning to lead VIM teams to Russia next year.  If you would like to join either of their teams please call Audrey as well.
