Edgar and Pamela have lived and ministered in Kursk, Russia since 1998. In 2002 the Lord teamed the Norrises with medical students from Africa and Asia to start an English language church, Word of Christ Church Internationl (WCCI). Their vision and that of WCCI is giving foreigners a heart for Russia and giving Russians a heart for the world. Walking in unity with several Russian churches gives the Norrises and WCCI a unique opportunity to be a blessing to Russians as well as foreigners. As members of the church graduate (as doctors & various business professionals) and leave Kursk, they take with them more than just a degree. They take training in the things of God and the tools to become leaders and to influence their societies.
