Missionaries

Just like every church in this world, CMBC has limitations. It is impossible for any single church to reach out around the globe. However, Jesus said that the church needs to spread the Gospel to every nation. Therefore it is important to support solid missionaries who can clearly give the gospel, build churches, and do ministry in every corner of the world. Below is a list of missionaries support by CMBC along with bios underneath.

Yuri Romanchik – Belarus –  SGA

RomanchikYuri Romanchik and his family has worked hard to reach the town of Ostrino with the love of Christ. SGA-sponsored church-planting missionaries know that being summoned by the authorities can mean serious trouble. In many regions across the lands of Russia, there is substantial opposition to evangelical churches. Yet for Yuri Romanchik, his summons had a much happier outcome. He explained to the local authorities in the town of Ostrino what his church was doing in the community and why they were doing it. The city council was impressed with the church’s outreach to children and youth in the city, as well as with their ministry to alcoholics and the poor. As a result, the local government allowed the church to conduct a summer school and other activities. The Lord had declared His power and opened the doors for the church to advance their ministry in Ostrino. For more information click here.
