My name is Max Gorbunov. In 1996 I worked as a translator at a conference “Christian Ethics in School” and was presented with a Bible. I started reading 3 chapters from the New Testament at home every evening and had days when I received the answers to my questions!  In two months, on March 26th, 1996 God entered my life and I received Jesus Christ as my personal Savior being on my knees in prayer at home.

Within 2 months the Lord gave me a chance to visit a couple in Moscow that I was translating for. By that time they knew that there was a Calvary Chapel in Moscow.  Calvary Chapel was where they used to go to when they were in the United States. I really enjoyed the services at church and started praying for a Calvary Chapel in Omsk. George Bryson, head of Calvary Chapel Church Planting Mission (CCCPM) in Russia, came to Omsk that summer. We spent a day talking and praying together about a Calvary Chapel in Omsk.

We had a first church service of Calvary Chapel Omsk on March, 2nd, 1997. The man I was translating for a year before became our first pastor.  In July 2001 the Lord called me to pastor the church in Omsk.

We are really thankful to the Lord for giving us an opportunity to serve together with Pastor Larry Anderson and Pastor Gary Malkus from Calvary Chapel Phelan. The first outreach was in 2002. Since that time we had outreaches every year and the fruit is amazing! The Lord has been adding to our number outreach by outreach those who were being saved! In 2008 the Lord has given us a chance to meet our new family from Calvary Chapel Apple Valley! We look forward to all God has for us in the future.
