ALMATY BIBLE INSTITUTE
Praise God for this place of formal training for Christian ministry within Central Asia. The International Bible Institute in Almaty receives students from countries across Central Asia and is directed by Alexander Kiriakov who is sponsored by SGA. Courses are offered for Pastors, Evangelists, Youth and Children’s workers. SGA staff members are involved in the Institute’s teaching programme. Prayer is needed as the Kazakh government continues to make life difficult for the Institute.
There are many social and economic problems in Central Asia. Often those who are most vulnerable struggle to provide for themselves and their families. Christians try to help these people so that relationships are built, prejudices broken down and the love of Christ shown in practical ways. SGA partners with churches in a number of ways.
Partnership In Caring
JOY OF CHRISTMAS
This is a ministry undertaken by our partners in Central Asia to distribute Christmas gifts to underprivileged and poor children. For many this will be the only present they receive. As gifts are distributed, opportunity is taken to teach the true reason for our celebrations.
Financial assistance is given to churches to subsidize the cost of Bible camps for young people. This is a great opportunity for children and teenagers from Muslim, Orthodox and other backgrounds to enjoy a holiday and come under the sound of the Gospel for the first time.
