As a founder of this ministry and Board Chair, I can say that iCare Ministries is something that I am proud of in my personal and professional life. It is a highly respected and extremely effective nonprofit. We are providing services that are much needed in this broken world. People who participate in our programs get the help they need to get right with Jesus Christ, become disciples of the Word, be trained and equipped for the work of ministry to be able to effectively share their lives with others and take good care of the needy. We have had numerous success stories! Many of our former participants are now pastoring churches, ministering and mentoring people who want to be changed by Jesus Christ. iCare Ministries are transforming lives and destinies! For that, we praise Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior!

Returning to Russia year after year to engage and serve with this ministry has been a privilege. I personally have observed commitment and dedication from all involved. The heart of this organisation is shown through the practical provision of the fundamental essentials to the children. In the orphanages and working with the street children I have seen first-hand the effect financial, spiritual and emotional support can have in young lives broken by circumstances beyond their control. I have also had the privilege of teaching, alongside others who have the same passion to empower and equip pastors, leaders, and prospective leaders for the work of service in their communities. Our aim is to revolutionize the study of and motivate the exposition of God’s word. Encouraging fellow believers in the advancement of ministries and expansion of the kingdom through the establishment of new churches. Some of the communities I have seen impacted by the Moscow Leaders’ Forum or the Bible Study Training Seminars are Cherepovets, Severodvinsk, Cherkessk, Russia and Kremenchug, Ukraine. This is made possible by the generosity of the donors and the faithful devotion of volunteers and staff honouring God in this ministry for His Glory.
Thank you, Lewis for a great review! It has always been a pleasure and privilege to work with you equipping the saints for the work of service in the former Soviet Union! Can't wait to see you face to face in 2021.
I have known Igor and his wife Olga, for over two years. We had a privilege to minister together and provide Biblican courses to the pastoral team in the country of Myanmar. During the two weeks in Myanmar, I had discovered a very open hearted person, with strong Christian values and principles. He is a person who has dedicated his life to reaching the lost souls. He is also a very gifted person, that God uses to equip the church. After meeting Igor for the first time and ministering with him in Myanmar, our families became close friends. I love Igor and Olga, and I am honored to have people like them in my life.

My husband and I have known pastor Igor and his wife Olga since 1994. We met them when they came to minister in our church. We fell in love with them right away since we had not known anyone else like them. To this day they are truly sold out to serving Jesus. They truly have hearts of love and concern for the lost, lonely, and desperate. They always build bridges with such people and build them up in the Lord. Igor and Olga have raised up many pastors all over the world who to this day are faithfully serving Jesus and people in their own communities. Jimmy and I have had the privilege to host some of them in our home. What a thrill it is to be able to know them by name and know how they are changed by Igor's ministry.
iEQUIP program truly helps a person to become a disciple of the Word. The ministry team travels around and teaches how to study the Bible and be dependent on the Holy Spirit for interpretations and applications.
We support this ministry to this day. We have seen it grow and develop through the years and been a part of it all. Whatever the Lord has laid on Igor's heart, we have seen it come to pass. All praise and glory to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
“iEQUIP: How to Study and Preach the Bible Inductively” program is life-giving and life-changing! Changed the way I study and preach the Word altogether!
Definitely recommend this program to every Christian.
Thank you Sergio for such a lovely review. Stay blessed and shine the Light!
It was a marvelous sight and experience to see many sides of Jesus’s face impact His little lambs in Russia.
My Church has partnered with Igor in running after Jesus and learning to bring a lifestyle of Him to communities far and wide. I was honored to get the opportunity to help with the Light of Hope Emergency Shelter in the “Sharing is Caring” Program in Russia.
It was such a joy to watch as the children got to experience the Love of Jesus from the Pastors and Helpers at the Shelter. The faces of these individuals shined His light that drew not only my eyes, but the children and people from the outside. Thru my weeks there, light was introduced to an ever so dark place and it was so beautiful. The work there is not finished yet but I know the power that is at work in this Shelter and it will continue to bring the love of Jesus to His lost lambs who are in need of their loving Shepherd.
We were tremendously blessed serving Jesus with you, Jess! Hope you will pay another visit after the pandemic.
I am extremely impressed with the management of the ministry, the integrity and generosity! After so many years of involvement, I absolutely recommend this nonprofit in the highest level!

Thank you, Igor for the review! Was going to see you in 2020. Unfortunately, my trip to Ukraine was cancelled due to the pandemic. But we are with you in our prayers and in the Spirit! Blessings!
My wife and I have been supporting Pastor Igor and ICM for the last couple of years and have been continually impressed with the success of the organization. The mission of ICMinistries is to care and bring the lost to Jesus Christ, make disciples of the Word, equip disciple makers in many nations, such as Russia, Ukraine, India, Nepal, Burma, Israel and financially sponsor one of the emergency shelters for the street children in Russia.
We have personally seen lives transformed and have witnessed many street children who had reached rock bottom have their lives changed because of this organization.
In my opinion iCare Ministries is a huge blessing not only for the people they cared for but for all of us who contribute finances, gifts, and time to this ministry. Thank you guys for being obedient to the Lord and doing what Jesus has called you to do! Keep up the good work!

Thank you, Vitaly and Shawna for the review! Your funding powers our ministry! Every contribution big or small, makes a difference in someone's life!
As a director of Light of Hope Emergency Children’s Shelter, I see many organizations that say they serve underprivileged children; and yet they barely reach the kids that need help most. iCare Ministries really puts action behind all of its promises to bring aid into the lives of at-risk children!
We currently work in the extremely poor neighborhood in Cherepovets, Russia. Most of the families living there are immigrants from Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan trying to scrape together a better life for their children. The opportunities to have good quality music and arts education are very few for these kids. iCare Ministries made it possible for dozens of less fortunate and street children to receive music and art lessons in our shelter. On top, their “Sharing is Caring” program enabled us to buy good quality school supplies for the entire academic year and give the supplies to each and every child as a gift. iCare Ministries is the real deal, folks!

It has been a pure joy alongside you with your beautiful ministry, Andrei. Keep up the good work, Mate! Hope to see you in 2021!
For about 10 years I have known Igor & Olga and have been a part of this ministry. These are faithful stewards and consistently reveal by their words and actions the grace and truth of Jesus Christ. They live the truths that they teach and preach to others. In daily life they are people you can trust and go to for any need and they will help. I am so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful ministry blessed by God - which is bringing forth abundant fruit!
"But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty." Matt. 13:23
Thank you, Wendy for being a long term friend and donor of ICMinistries! Thanks for the review! POWERFUL, as usual!
We have been going through "The Truth Will Set You" Free with Pastor Igor and ICM ministries, and it is POWERFUL!! Through this program, the men in my ministry have had their eyes opened to the truth of God's Word and their desperate need for a savior to free them from their sin of addiction! I highly recommend it.
Director of U-Turn for Christ Camino
Thank you, Jeremy - it has been a privilege and honor to work with you!
ICare is a perfect name for this Ministry! Our son Tyler was in trouble and headed down a dark road. Although we raised him to walk with Christ he was making other choices that terrified us. We were introduced to Igor by a mutual friend. From the moment we talked with him our hearts felt great relief because Igor had a huge caring heart! We knew our son needed to be reassured of Gods love and purpose for his life. Igor did not waste any time connecting with him. Igor helped glue back together what had fallen apart by teaching Tyler an in depth study of Gods Word. It created a new way of thinking for Tyler. A step back in the right direction. The compassion and non judgmental approach is exactly what he needed. Tyler always felt judged by other Christians and didn’t want anything to do with it. We believe Igor has an amazing way of connecting with others on a human level. He finds a way into your heart and has a way of holding it and making you feel safe to open up so the Holy Spirit can speak to you! We are so very thankful for the work Christ has called Igor to do.
Thank you so much, Rhonda for such a powerful review!
