Purcell, Graham & Sarah

Serving in Russia | Acct # 16239


Graham grew up in Russia. After high school, he attended The University of Mississippi and graduated with a degree in political science. He was then commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army, and did one tour in Afghanistan. It was while deployed that Graham first felt the Lord’s call into full-time ministry and back to Russia. Sarah was raised in the church and has had all kinds of opportunities to use her leadership gifts to serve the local body. She loves exercising, being a mother of two, and has been a piano instructor for the last 12 years. She has always had a heart for missions, and met Graham while on a short-term mission trip to Russia.

In recent years, Graham and Sarah have ministered to post graduate international students in St. Louis, while Graham finished his seminary degree. This confirmed their desire to serve together in cross-cultural and international ministry. Their desire is to help solidify and expand the church-planting network and seminary already present in St. Petersburg, as well as form a coalition of Reformed and evangelical leaders across the Russian-speaking world. Most of all Graham and Sarah have a heart to share the transforming power of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to a people in darkness.

Please pray for Graham and Sarah that the grace of the gospel would continue to impact them deeply as they minister in Russia!
