CYI Conference Held in Moscow

By Jay Rogers
Published May 1, 1991

MOSCOW (FR) – This is the hour of destiny for the Soviet Union! Today the hope of a renaissance is being birthed in the Soviet Union. While some have predicted future gloom for this nation, the Word of God offers a brighter promise: “All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before Him. For dominion belongs to the Lord and He rules over the nations” (Psalm 22:27).

A revolution is quietly taking place in the Soviet Union. The situation in this country is similar to what happened in the 1960s in America – there is political and economic turmoil, there are frequent demonstrations and worker’s strikes – but also like the 1960s, there is a “Jesus Movement” among the young people.

On April 3-7, an evangelism and church planting training seminar was held in the Izmajilovo Hotel, near the Olympic complex, in Moscow. This conference, the first leadership training seminar of Christian Youth International, was attended by 300 Soviet university students. Some came thousands of miles from cities in Soviet Asia.

These young people are among the brightest and most promising leaders in their society. These Soviet students love God; they are servants; they are intelligent, and full of faith and excitement. These students are the future of the Soviet Union.

According to director, José Pascua, “Christian Youth International is a Soviet based organization, which will be staffed by Soviet Christians. From here we will send evangelists to Red China and Eastern Europe and reach the whole world.”

Founder and President, Bob Weiner, further described the vision: “Working together with Terry Law, Daniel Williams of Calvary Ministries, and Mission Possible, we are going to see the glory of God come in the Soviet Union. Every city, every town will have a new wine skin – a fresh expression of the glorious Church.”

There was truly a Spirit of Revival present throughout the five days of the conference. The main characteristic among the students was their genuine love for Jesus Christ and for each other. Their excitement at the expectation of a growing movement all across the Soviet Union resulted in an electric fervor.

Featured speakers during the five day conference included Keith Curley, a pastor from Houston, Texas, and Daniel Williams, founder of Riga Bible College in Riga, Latvia. Students met for three sessions a day which included many hours of praise, teaching and leadership training.

On Saturday, April 6, they were given 11,500 Russian New Testaments, hundreds of copies of Jesus Brings New Life, a foundational Bible study series by Bob and Rose Weiner, recently translated and printed in the Russian language, and hundreds of complete Russian Bibles. These were the first of the 230,000 New Testaments donated to CYI by Terry Law Ministries and Mission Possible.

From April to July, these 300 newly equipped Christian leaders will be conducting Bible studies among university students all across the Soviet Union. Students who successfully complete the Bible study program will be given an invitation to an all-expense paid leadership conference held at the Izmajilovo Hotel in July.

It was estimated by the directors of CYI that the July conference will be attended by over 4000 Christian students. The remaining 218,500 New Testaments will be distributed to the thousands of leaders who will be trained at this conference. CYI also hopes to print 100,000 Bible study books in the Russian language which will be used in evangelistic Bible studies all across the U.S.S.R.

Churches will be planted on those universities where large numbers of Soviet students are experiencing revival. The goal of CYI is to plant a New Testament church on every major university campus in the Soviet Union.

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.

The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

Running Time: 257 minutes
