Our History

Mission Eurasia (formerly called Peter Deyneka Russian Ministries) was founded in 1991 just after the collapse of the Soviet Union by Reverend Peter and Anita Deyneka to react quickly and decisively to new opportunities for evangelism and church-planting in this former communist empire.

Today, under the leadership of Sergey Rakhuba, Mission Eurasia and its in-country affiliate Mission Eurasia Field Ministries work in 13 countries of Eurasia and Israel to train, equip, and mobilize the Next Generation of Christian leaders to transform their nations for Christ through strategic, holistic ministry.
