On November 3, 2023, the Lutheran Church of Kazan, Tatarstan, hosted a meeting of ELCIR Uralic Deanery ministers. The topics for discussion were congregational budgets and work plans. ELCIR Mission Dept. Secretary Yelena Kugappi explained how and why churches should apply for grants in written form and answered questions. Bishop Laptev participated online and presented a church self-sufficiency project idea.
Many thanks to all the participants in this meeting and we pray for all the ministers that God may give them wisdom, endurance and faith in the work of the ministry!
