Congratulations to Dr. Vyacheslav Tsvirinko!

Please join me in congratulating VT, the Director of the Visalia Center, and praising the Lord for the successful completion of his doctoral studies! After a number of years of hard work and travel, VT has completed the Ph.D. program in Contextualized Missiology from the University of Wales, under the International Baptist Theological Seminary located in Prague, Czech Republic. He successfully defended his dissertation in March, the final draft was accepted by the examiners, and the Ph.D. was recently awarded by the Research Degree Board of the University of Wales.
 
The topic of his dissertation is "Context and Contextuality: Towards an Authentic Mission Perspective for the Churches of the Pacific Coast Slavic Baptist Association."  I am sure VT would be happy to explain his findings.  VT, we are grateful for your years of service to FPU, and celebrate this very important event with you!
