Students spend a part of their practical assignment in going to many
villages that have no Christian witness. As a result, there have been
churches established, and now some of the graduates are pastoring these
pioneer churches all over Far East Russia.
Some of these villages are close enough for
students to go and minister over the week-ends.
Other graduates work in church and missionary
situations, some even traveled regularly to China.
Approximately 60% of the Graduates from FAITH IN ACTION are involved in
some kind of Christian Ministry. This is much higher than that of most
other Bible training institutes in Russia.
Since 1994 about two hundred students have graduated and received their
diploma. Graduation ceremonies are held twice a year. However the
training they have received on how to rely upon the Holy Spirit for
God's leading, guiding and power is much more valuable than any diploma.
In 2004 a reunion of Graduates was held, with over 60 attending during
the functions. There were many testimonies of how the Lord had met them
in their ministries over the years.
These students have gone out to change their world, with the joy of the
Lord in their hearts and the Word of the God on their lips, and a
passion to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with their fellow Russians
and the neighboring Chinese and North Korean people.
