Klin Ministry is
a Miller Avenue sponsored church and outreach for many Russian people living in the shadow of
the capitol - Moscow. Klin, 100,000 city is located 60 miles NW from Moscow and is an old and
rich in history town. Protestant
(Baptist) underground church was established in 1944. In the communist ruled country church grew to 30 members in 1967.
The same year church obtained an official church building,
which was simply a restructured 700 sq ft dwelling house. Church always was active in spreading Gospel in community, schools, city streets, orphanages. Organized social
campaigns like soup kitchens to support needy and reach as many souls as possible. In the times of "perestroika" church distributed thousands of
Bibles and established 2 satellite churches on the near by towns of Vysokovsk and Povorovo. 4 years ago when
church membership was approaching 200 it was impossible to allocate all people in the old building, so church started construction project of the new, much
larger building. Despite the fact that times of "openness" and brief taste of civil liberties quickly vanished, and
now life is more difficult - trusting in the Lord and His Power - church building project is almost completed. Even toughest
skeptics and critics of this initiative are simply amazed now. Indeed, it is truly
miraculous how Lord blessed this church and His mighty hand was so visibly
present all the time of construction project. It is the real life proof, that if believers have God's blessing - they will prevail.
