While working in Russia, we found that translated Western church planting materials lacked the cultural adaptation necessary to be effective in the Former Soviet Union (FSU). When Peter Deyneka Russian Ministries and the Alliance for Saturation Church Planting combined their resources to write something more appropriate, I joined the effort. Several years later, we completed the Omega Course. 

The Omega Course is designed to offer practical advice on how to plant churches in a non-Western environment. It has been successful far beyond our original hopes and is now being used far beyond the FSU. To date, the Omega Course has been translated in to over 30 languages and is being used to train national church planters around the world. The Essential Vision booklet gives an introductory overview of the reason for church planting. View or download the Omega Course from the links below.
