Missionaries Kalzhan and Gulia Alimbekov

Kalzhan and Gulia Alimbekov have pastored The Church of the Living God in Gusev, Russia since 1996. Their church is a beacon of hope and life to the people of Gusev and the surrounding area.

They have raised up pastors and planted churches in Ozersk, Nesterov, and Krasnosnamensk and are seeking to plant churches in Kazakhstan and Kaliningrad.

The Church of the Living God ministers the love of God to the people in their area through evangelistic and humanitarian outreach to orphanages, shelters, a babies’ home as well as to the homeless, elderly and disabled. Through their internet radio ministry they are able to reach into many homes that would not otherwise have access to the Gospel.
