TCM has a very important role in my life and my ministry.
I will start with telling you a little bit about myself and my family. My wife’s name is Natalia. We have two boys. The oldest is 5 years old and youngest is three. In 2 months we expect our third child and we are looking forward to it.
I work in the Bible Mission and have a ministry in a Bible correspondence school. It is a great blessing for me because I have been praying for a long time and wanted to serve God in educational institutions. So that is why for my work and ministry in the local church (I attend Church of Christ in Minsk, Belarus) it is essential for me to study at TCMII.
1) Which TCM class had the most impact on you and your ministry? Describe how you implemented what you learned in this class into your ministry. How has attending TCM classes impacted you and your relationship with the Lord?
My studies influence in a serious way my life and ministry. A good example for that is the course of Tony Twist “Theology and Practice of Prayer” that I have attended in Austria. That course has changed dramatically my attitude towards prayer. My relationship with God became much closer and much brighter. And of course I am very happy for that. In addition, that course is now helping me in conducting lessons on prayer and other things with my brothers from church.
2) How would you describe your experience earning your degree from TCM? If you could thank people who support TCM's ministry, what would you say?
This year, unfortunately I will be able to attend only one course in Belarus. This is connected with the coming of our third child. But of course I would want to attend many more courses. Later, next year and the following I plan to seriously and actively study because I see the big need in it. Frankly, I even miss it. After graduating with MA I plan to continue the studies with MDiv. And after that, Lord willing, I would like to continue my studies and to pursue Doctorate of Theology. Of course, I have these plans not just to be able to get my diplomas and be happy about it. I see that this knowledge allow me to bring fruit for the Lord and His Kingdom here in Belarus.
My family and I are very thankful to you for supporting my studies. My salary is very low and with my great desire I would never be able to pay for my studies all by myself.
May the Lord bless you!
