Russia Outreach

What Is It?

The Russia Outreach Committee (better known as ROC) has a nearly 20-year history of partnering with United Methodist Christians in Russia to bring Christ to those who have not yet met him.  We are now working with Trinity UMC in Prince Frederick, MD to help support Millennium UMC in Orel, Russia to build up its congregation and acquire a permanent worship space.


What Do We Do?

We have just worked with Millennium United Methodist Church to purchase land.  A permanent worship is in the works!

Team members (from both American churches) may make occasional trips to Orel.  We welcome new members to join us!


How Can You Help?

If you would like to be part of an exciting ministry of bringing Christ to Russia, please contact Libby Horn at

Contributions for the construction of a worship facility may be sent to or dropped off at the church.  Please make checks payable to Bel Air United Methodist Church and write “Millennium UMC” on the memo line.

You may contact our partner pastor Lev Mikhailov, his wife Nadya Mikhailova, and the congregation at  Replies take a while because of the need for translation.  Pastor Lev is also on FaceBook and has wonderful photos posted of the Millennium UMC congregation!
