Ministry Overview » Equipping Churches
READ partners with eight Bible Colleges and Seminaries in Ukraine and Belarus to equip church workers. In these schools, church librarian-counselors are trained over a two year period to serve as a church's literature specialist and Christian counselor.
In addition, READ seeks to meet the needs of local churches for quality, Bible-based literature and other media resources for their ministries of evangelism, church planting, and discipleship. To accomplish this, READ gives the churches of these librarian-counselors a 300 volume Russian-language church lending library.
READ also supports evangelical church-based social outreach ministries. READ provides Christian literature and other media resources to evangelical churches engaged in evangelism, church planting and discipleship ministries in jails, prisons, and rehabilitation centers.
