Congregational Twinning and Outreach to Minorities (Russia and Eastern Europe)

This project funds the sending and support costs of mission coworkers to work with two ministries. Ellen Smith is the regional liaison for Eastern Europe. Ellen and Al Smith coordinate the Congregational Twinning Project in Russia and Belarus, a program connecting congregations in the US with congregations in Russia and Belarus for mission and friendship. Al Smith also works to expand the mission outreach of partner churches in Russia and Eastern Europe to marginalized ethnic minorities, particularly Roma. The emphasis is on evangelism, community development, and human rights. The Smiths are based in Germany.
