Thirty days of historic outreach to the great southern Russian city of Krasnodar and its satellite cities has concluded. Great Commission Media Ministries together with local Russian churches have seen unprecedented response.

5,124,000 people live in Krasnodar region. A symphony of all available media directs city residents to a call center and website. Everyone gets a free evangelistic book containing the four spiritual laws and testimonies of dramatically changed lives in the region.

Two other cities have been the sites of simultaneous evangelism campaigns: Novorossisk, a major Russian naval base on the Black Sea with a population 290,000 and Maikop with a population of 175,000.

In Novorossiysk alone we saw over three thousand people respond to the campaign message: “God gives you the power to change!” Every one of the 50,000 homes in this city was presented with the opportunity to respond to the Gospel. The months ahead will be a time of harvesting in South Russia.

Throughout the region a total of 3,000,000 residents have been exposed to the Gospel message using local media. This includes TV, radio, billboards, newspapers, magazines, SMS, Internet, ads in the public transport system.

Southern Russia suffers from serious drug related problems, alcohol, family break up and militant Islam in the Caucasus Mountains just east of Krasnodar. A press conference was held before the campaign started to inform city officials as well as citizens about the campaign goals.
