Stumbling sins

I did not kill anyone, I did not commit adultery, I am in no way connected with drugs …. I read the Bible and pray, but I don’t feel spiritual growth ….
Who and what bothers me and puts
The “footboard”?
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Heb. 12: 1.

Born in the small Siberian city of Tara, Omsk region.
The family had twelve children.
Today they are all adults, they have their own families, they all know the Lord.
Three of them are pastors.

Happy family - is it possible? (I want to get married)

Happy family – is it possible?
L.N. Tolstoy said: “In life, there is only one undoubted happiness – to live for another.”

How to prepare yourself for life with another person 30, 40 or maybe more years old and being sure not that you yourself get happy, but that your “half” is happy with you?
How to keep your spirit intact before marriage?
What you need to beware of and come to marriage without blemish in the shower?
What does it mean to keep your body holy until you enter into a legal relationship with your spouse?

Of course, we will study the Scriptures and get answers from Togo, who is the “Architect” of true happiness in marriage. We will definitely “consider” the image of Him Who knows how to make the most unhappy happy, although it was expensive to pay for it.
In the book of the Song of Songs the scene of the meeting of the bride with the bridegroom is described: “He brought me to the house of the feast, and his banner over me is love.” (Pesn.2: 4)
How blessed, at the beginning of a new life, to enter the house of a feast, and not the house of broken hopes and disappointments.

Born in Almaty, Kazakhstan. After serving in the Soviet army, at the age of 20, together with his wife Lena, they went to live in the Far East of Russia in Blagoveshchensk.

Since 1991, ordained to pastoral service in the church. Until 1998, they served in the central church of Blagoveshchensk, and also performed active missionary service in the Amur Region.
He is currently serving as a senior pastor at the Evangelism Russian Baptist Church, Washington, and a member of the committee at the North-West European Union Association, USA.

She has three children and seven wonderful grandchildren.
The meaning of the name Igor is a defender of the name of God, which I try to do with God’s help.

I love to preach the gospel of youth and point out the power and power of God, and also share personal experience that living with the Lord is the right choice of a person. And this is not only right, but good and interesting.
I want to be myself filled with divine light, and also call on young people, following the example of Christ and His power to become a light for the world, which is in the darkness of godlessness.

Youth Camps

Title: “The Gospel as the Heart of Camp”

Synopsis:

Camps: everybody does camp. But…why? Is it important how we do them? In this seminar, we will look at camping ministry as a powerful instrument or means, to influence people with the Gospel of Jesus. For this to happen we need to do 3 things:

  1. Put the Gospel in the GOALof your camp
  2. Put the Gospel in the Staffof your camp
  3. Put the Gospel in the Programof your camp

I was born in Argentina to a wonderful missionary family, where I was brought up by godly parents who love God. So missionary work was my environment since my childhood, doing exciting activities like camps, teen meetings, sport events and conferences. In 1992 my family moved to Ukraine to begin the ministry of “Word of Life” in that area, and it was during one of our summer camps when I was 12 years old that I accepted Jesus as my Savior.

In 2001 I made a special commitment to God, knowing he was calling me to full time missionary work, and by the end of 2004, after I finished Bible Institute in Argentina, I joined the Staff of “Word of Life Ukraine” as a full time missionary.

Over the years, I have been able to serve in ministries involving Local Churches, summer and winter camps and youth Conferences. The last years my ministry was focused on directing the ministry of the Bible Institute. In 2013, I assumed the leadership of the “Word of Life” ministry in Ukraine. Our passion is to instruct and teach young people through discipleship relationships, helping them become fruitful and effective in serving Jesus Christ!

I am married since 2007 to my wife Iryna and we have 2 awesome kids. Camellia (7) and Ayden is (4). I love sports, reading and learning about history. I have had the privilege of traveling to more than 20 countries to speak to young people about Jesus Christ. I speak 5 languages.

What role does technology play in our Christian life?

For us believers, there has always been a question: what role does technology play in our Christian life? For example, Amish still do not use electricity. Radio chambers were once banned in churches, but they transmitted Christian broadcasts to closed countries and now every person has a radio in their car. TVs were banned, but many of us have seen the movie “Jesus,” and now many have televisions at home. There have been times of concern about the use of computers and the Internet, but this congress will be broadcast on the Internet. Today, perhaps many of you are reading this text on your phone, which has more power than computers that you used to help a person get to the moon. So, technology brings many dilemmas and contradictions in our lives. How can we, believers, relate to technology and use it correctly in our lives?

Я родился в 1982 году в семье верующих христиан-баптистов в Украине. Когда мне было тринадцать лет, моя семья решила эмигрировать. Мы поселились в маленьком штате Нью-Гэмпшир. Мне очень нравится природа в этом штате, особенно осень, но снега бывает здесь очень много!

Самый важный момент в моей жизни
Живя в христианской семье, я всегда слышал о Боге и даже посещал церковь. Но я прекрасно понимал, что я еще не испытал духовного возрождения в своей жизни. Я много знал о Боге, но не знал Бога лично. Другими словами, у меня не было личных отношений с Богом. В один прекрасный день, учительница христианской школы, в которой я учился, (её звали Мисс Фламинг), над которой я часто смеялся, сказала мне со слезами в глазах: “Дмитрий, тебя любит Бог.” Вроде бы очень простые слова, но эти слова очень сильно коснулись моей души, и я ощутил большую нужду в том, что мне нужен Бог, что я являюсь грешным человеком и нуждаюсь в том, чтобы Бог очистил и спас меня от моих грехов. Я обратился к Богу с молитвой покаяния в моих грехах и верой в то, что Иисус Христос пострадал на кресте за мои грехи. После этого покаяния и духовного возрождения я стал верующим человеком и последователем Иисуса Христа, моя жизнь просто радикально изменилась.  Я обрел мир и покой в моей душе, и также в моей жизни появились новые цели и ценности. Но самое главное — у меня появилось личное и живое общение с Богом через молитву и чтение Его Слова. Намного легче жить, когда у тебя есть надежда на Бога и доверие Ему. Нет ничего более прекрасней, чем жизнь с Богом. Я искренне желаю этого каждому человеку на земле.

Семья
Господь подарил мне чудесную супругу Ольгу, которою я очень сильно люблю. Она является моим другом, помощником и заботливой женой. Она всегда следит за тем, что я кушаю, и всегда старается убедить меня, что мне надо похудеть.У нас была мечта иметь деток сразу после свадьбы, но к сожалению мы не могли забеременеть в течение семи лет. После долгих молитв и визитов к разным докторам, Бог положил нам на сердце удочерить девочку Евдокию в возрасте 13 лет. Сразу же после того как мы решили пойти на этот серьезный шаг, и подписали документы, мы узнали что Оленька беременна сыном (Тимошей). Это чудо Божие в нашей жизни которому мы не перестаем удивляться! Слава Богу за Его милость к нам.

Образование
Последние два года я учился в христианской школе Calvary Christian School. После окончания школы я поступил в Pensacola Christian College. Там я проучился пять лет и получил два бакалавра: один в Computer Science (B.S.) а другой в Pastorial Ministries (B.A). После этого я окончил магистратуру в Southern New Hampshire University в Computer Science (M.S). После этого в 2014 году я закончил семинарию Pensacola Theological Seminary со степенью магистра (М.А. in Bible Exposition).

Служение
С 17 лет я проповедую и провожу молодежные. Также участвую проповедью на конференциях и ретритах, и другиx баптистскиx церквях. Несколько лет назад я был рукоположен на диакона. Сейчас несу служение ведущего пресвитера в Славянской Баптисткой церкви, Londonderry NH . Я также преподаю в Библейском колледже предметы Систематическое и Сравнительное богословие. После покаяния начал интересоваться историей ЕХБ, в результате основал веб сайт slavicbaptists.com где я размещаю интересные статьи которые нахожу в интернете или материалы которые мне дают братья и сестры.

Работа
По профессии я инженер-программист (Software Engineer) и работою в страховой компании. Стараюсь балансировать между семьей, служением и работой. Кто занимается похожим делом, может увидеть мою работу здесь или на моем рабочем блоге. А также по вечерам я преподаю информационные технологии и компьютерные науки на программах подготовки к степени магистра и программах бакалаврского уровня в Southern New Hampshire University.

Хобби
Люблю проводить время со своей семьёй, и общаться с друзьями, особенно говорить об Иисусе Христе. Мне вообще очень нравится говорить с людьми о Боге, особенно отвечать на вопросы коллег, с которыми я работаю. Мне также очень нравится путешествовать с моей женой Ольгой. Я также очень люблю читать, покупаю столько книг, что не успеваю их все прочитать.

How to evangelize the Jews?

How to evangelize the Jews?

1) What is the secret of evangelism for the salvation of the Jews?
2) God did not reject His people, which He knew beforehand!
3) What is the power of the gospel to the Jews, so that their Messiah, Jesus Christ, may live in their hearts?
4) What is the purpose of the Church of Christ for the salvation of Israel?

Alex Faibi, born in 1956 in a simple, large, non-religious Jewish family, in the city of Kishinev. Parents spoke mainly Yiddish, which I absorbed from my childhood. All the years up to the move to Israel, I was diligently not allowed to forget from which people I am.

After severe tests during the fatal illness of his wife in 1987, the Lord God, whom we did not know yet, performed a great miracle of healing, shaking and crushing our hearts, and many people around, who saw the power of God. The Lord with a strong hand turned me towards Himself and depriving me of peace, excites my heart to this day, to preach Christ to my people. The Lord called me to Himself, after the repentance of Regina’s wife in the local Chisinau Baptist Church in 1988, where we were baptized.

Since 1990 I have been living in Israel, where I declare the living Word of God, revealing, explaining and proving about the Messiah-Christ, Who was written in the Tanakh (Old Testament), Moses, David and all the Prophets.

For more than 20 years we have served the deaf, whom the Lord joins the local Church, for joint worship and glorification of God and Christ.

My wife and I have three children, two daughters and a son who, by the grace of God, serve in the Church. The eldest daughter translates from Hebrew and English into Russian, her husband is the pastor of the Church.

Son, teaches a group of young people in the Church, his wife leads a Sunday (Saturday) children’s group. The youngest daughter is responsible in the worship group.

The purpose of life is Christ, in order to fulfill His command by giving a debt in order to readily and without shame, to preach the gospel of salvation, first of all to Judea, then to Hellenes.

How to find your ministry?

Most of the members of our churches have no ministry and are Sunday parishioners. Some, though they are serving, for example, sing in the choir, make video reports, maintain a church website, or many others still feel guilty because they are not sure whether they have a spiritual gift or not. Thus, in reality, only a few percent of people in the church know their spiritual gift and serve them in the church.

In this seminar, we will learn the basic principles of practical gifts and ministry.

I was born on December 25, 1978 in the Transcarpathian region. Ukraine. At 14, I responded to God’s call and repented, been baptized, and began to preach and lead a home Bible study group. At that time, our village church experienced a rather strong revival, and many young brothers had a desire to be missionaries. In 1994, when I was 15 years old, I, together with another 9 young brothers, went on missionary service. We lived in tents, preached to the people, and collected meetings in homes. In just 6 months, with the help of God, 3 churches were founded. These events were turning points in my life, because I decided to devote my life to serving.

In 1998, he graduated from Kiev Christian University, was the leader of the youth of the ECB church in Kremenets, Ternopil region. In 2001 he was invited to a youth ministry in the city of Riga, Latvia. In 2003, he was ordained to pastoral ministry, which he carried until 2015.

Already in Latvia, God gave me a wonderful and faithful assistant, my wife, Anna, with whom I was already acquainted with Kiev. God gave us two children a daughter, Anna-Maria, and a son, Christian.

In 2015, I was invited to pastoral ministry in Montreal, Canada, where, by God’s grace, I still serve the ministry. Currently, they are also the coordinator of the youth ministry of the Slavic Association of Baptist Churches of Canada.
