Strengthening Russian-speaking Christians and churches by publishing and distributing Biblical resources in the former Soviet Union

Our Ministry

The Need for Resources

Russian is the 8th most commonly spoken language on the planet – over 170 million people. Biblical resources are hard to come by in Russian-speaking countries and many of the Christian resources available are filled with error. Since 1995, Grace to Russia has been providing solid Biblical resources to fill the void.


Grace to Russia is a ministry of Grace Bible Church, Canton, Georgia. We exist to strengthen Christians and churches in the former Soviet Union by translating and distributing biblical resources.

When the iron curtain came down, our founder took simple gospel tracts to Russia and began distributing them.  He soon developed a team of translators and began publishing pamphlets, and then books, to help bring light to a darkened land.  The Grace to Russia ministry quickly spread to all the Russian-speaking states of the former USSR. Our resources were eagerly received by people who had been kept from the truth all of their lives. As more people began coming to Christ, our focus changed to providing resources to strengthen churches and pastors to help them grow in godliness and continue to evangelize their culture. Even now, there are far too few resources available. Grace to Russia continues to work to meet the needs.
