Several years ago when I began serving on staff at Haus Edelweiss I met a young, newly married couple, Konstantin and Irina Nazarov, who I have had the privilege of becoming better acquainted with through the years. They have studied at TCM, shared about their ministry and have grown from a couple into a family.
A few weeks ago while I was at Haus Edelweiss, Irina was part of an interview presented by Alexey Fedichkin, TCM National Director from Russia. Here is a portion of that interview.
“My name is Irina and I am married with three children. My family lives near Moscow. Together with my husband we are starting a new church in our local area. In doing that we must work with both children and adults. I enjoy studying with TCM. First, because of the experience, attitudes and skills of the professors who teach for TCM. They are great and wonderful people and their teachings are practical and provide great influence on me. When working with people one always feels a lack of enough knowledge and skills. At the beginning of a class with TCM I often think, ‘I know something about this area,’ but then I always gain so much more than I expected as I study. The courses are not only helpful and healthy for my personal spiritual growth, but the fact that I can pass on to others what I have learned brings me great joy! I am grateful to the Lord, the professors and to all who make studying with TCM possible. May God bless all the efforts. Thank you!”
Growing spiritually, sharing with others knowledge and skills, planting churches are ways Irina is being used as an international disciple maker. Join us in the Great Commission Initiative as together we grow, pray and send, providing other Christian leaders the opportunities for leadership training that Irina has had.
