7,000 Russian Pastors Await “Maximize Your Influence” Translation

7,000 Russian Pastors Await “Maximize Your Influence” Translation

Although not commonly known or discussed, millions inside Russia don’t agree with Putin’s policies. Many Russian pastors are trying to change things from the inside, but without ready access to updated digital media strategies, it’s like they’re fighting on foot against an airborne army. Until now.

Phil Cooke’s “Maximize Your Influence: How to Make Digital Media Work for Your Church, Your Ministry, and You” has been translated into Russian by Russian nationals. And, through a trusted inside source, we have a tremendous opportunity to get this media resource into the hands of 7,000 pastors across Russia.

Some funds have already come in, but we’re not yet there. The cost of printing and distribution is estimated at $18,900. The book, once printed, will go to pastors in these regions:

Moscow—2,000 pastors
St. Petersburg—1000 pastors
Siberia—500 pastors
Udmurtia region—500 pastors
North of Russia—300 pastors
Perm region—1000 pastors
Bashkiria region—300 pastors
Ural region—400 pastors
Far East—500 pastors
Former Soviet Union—500 pastors

The timing is critical. These Russian pastors need our help to counter Putin’s propaganda with the true gospel. The equipping they gain through “Maximize Your Influence” will make a tremendous difference in how they can impact their nation.

Russian Pastors Equipped for the Digital Age with Phil Cooke’s Maximize Your Influence Book

Russian Pastors Equipped for the Digital Age with Phil Cooke’s Maximize Your Influence Book

In the midst of war, pastors in Russia are being equipped for the digital age with resources in their language. Phil Cooke’s book, Maximize Your Influence: How to Make Digital Media Work for Your Church, Your Ministry, and You was recently translated to Russian, offering Russian pastors the insight and strategies they need to share the gospel through digital media effectively.

The Christian witness and work of these Russian pastors is especially critical as the war between Russia and the Ukraine wages on. While the obstacles for these pastors are high, the opportunities also abound, with the digital age removing barriers to sharing the gospel. Translated by Russian nationals, Maximize Your Influence helps these pastors grasp the mindset for communicating in the digital age, and the strategies to make their digital outreach effective.

“Nothing matters more than the gospel,” shares Phil Cooke. “As an outreach of The Influence Lab, I’m honored to see my books translated as resources for pastors in nations who don’t have access to all we have in the U.S.”

This is not the first time Phil’s books have been translated into other languages, and more translations are currently in progress. Taiwanese translations of Phil’s leadership articles for church planters and workers are in process and funds are being raised for translating Maximize Your Influence into Tamil for pastors in Tamil Nadu, a state in Southern India.

Do you have a heart for the nations? Your partnership with The Influence Lab has a global impact, equipping pastors in war-torn countries and places where training for Christian workers is a desperate need.
