Who are We?
We are a ministry outreach of Moscow Good News Church serving those of the international community who speak English or French.
Moscow is home to more than 18 million people. Numerous foreigners have inadequate Russian skills causing their social circle to be quite limited and often contributing to feelings of isolation and loneliness.
The International Connection of Good News Church provides Christian fellowship in a safe and friendly atmosphere where foreigners can communicate and worship in a familiar language. We also provide resources and training through Spiritual Growth Seminars to help the international community grow in their relationship with God and endeavor to provide a “home away from home.” We are a welcoming community of family and friends.
To build a strong community of family and friends, raise up Christian disciples and help people fulfill God’s plan for their life by admonishing and teaching sound doctrine to present everyone fully mature in Christ.
The International Connection is led by Pastors Bob and Katherine Dickerson. The Dickersons answered the call to move to the former Soviet Union and came alongside the work of Pastors Rick and Denise Renner in 2004, when they moved to Moscow, Russia. Pastors Bob and Katherine have a heart to touch the lives of hurting people and through their work in the International Community, they endeavor to teach and train believers helping them to grow in their walk with God. Foreigners themselves; they understand the lifestyle challenges of living in the city of Moscow and are a source of encouragement for many who find themselves so very far away from home.
