Alexey and Tonia are the lead pastors of a church plant in the city of Novosibirsk, Russia.  Alongside their main focus, Tonia teaches English privately to both children and adults, and Alexey provides counselling and consulting to people in the community as a practical psychologist (since January 2017). Tonia is originally from Saskatchewan and she met Alexey in Moscow after moving there in 2002. They are also affiliated with the Russian Assemblies of God, a long-time partner of the PAOC.  Their passions are relationship-building, discipleship, and sharing the Gospel in one-on-one settings.


Alexey and Tonia had been living and working in Moscow when they heard the call to start a ministry in Altai, south-central Russia which bore much fruit while they were there. Recently, God called them to plant a church in Novosibirsk!
