Mission Eurasia focuses the gifts and energies of the global church on training and mobilizing young national Christian leaders in the countries of Eurasia and Israel. By providing strategic training, ministry experience, and a biblical foundation to our leaders, we are investing in the Next Generation of the church and equipping thousands of young men and women for a lifetime of impactful Christian witness and service.

Mission Eurasia works in 13 countries of the former Soviet Union, the region now called Eurasia. We also work in Israel due to the large Russian-speaking population that emigrated to Israel from the former Soviet Union. In each country where we work, we are training and mobilizing in-country Christian leaders to transform their nations for Christ!

Our vision is to evangelize, train, equip, and mobilize the Next Generation in the countries of Eurasia and Israel to lead the church in transforming their nations for Christ.

Mission statement

Mission Eurasia's mission is to train, equip, and mobilize Christian leadership throughout Eurasia, who will engage in indigenous evangelism, church-planting, holistic ministries, and church growth by developing creative and strategic ministries and by facilitating partnerships between nationals and Western Christians.

Statement of faith

1. We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.

4. We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word and deed.

5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood.

6. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there for us as a High Priest and Advocate.

7. We believe in that "blessed hope," the personal return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

8. We believe that the church, the body of Christ, consists only of those who are born again, who are baptized by the Holy Spirit into Christ at the time of regeneration, for whom He now makes intercession in heaven and for whom He will come again.

9. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting, conscious punishment of the lost.

10. We believe the primary responsibility of all who are saved is to work toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission. All worldly and personal ambitions should be subordinated to that supreme command of making disciples. We believe that human betterment and social justice are essential products of the gospel.

Mission Eurasia (formerly called Peter Deyneka Russian Ministries) was founded in 1991 just after the collapse of the Soviet Union by Reverend Peter and Anita Deyneka to react quickly and decisively to new opportunities for evangelism and church-planting in this former communist empire.

Today, under the leadership of Sergey Rakhuba, Mission Eurasia and its in-country affiliate Mission Eurasia Field Ministries work in 13 countries of Eurasia and Israel to train, equip, and mobilize the Next Generation of Christian leaders to transform their nations for Christ through strategic, holistic ministry.
