Philip’s vision is to facilitate revival atmosphere and help people walk in the presence of God through unity, kingdom strategy and foundational Christian training in the body of Christ. His heart is to see this in local churches, beginning in Kursk, Russia, then city-by-city, region-by-region, nation-by-nation, to the very ends of the earth! He desires to carry the message of grace, the goodness of God, and the teaching of faith to the Russian people and beyond.
Lily Rose was born and raised on the mission field, and when she was 16 received the call to missions. After attending college and completing a 10 month women’s health internship abroad, she is joining her parents as a missionary back in Russia. She has a heart for women’s ministry which extends from post-abortion healing and crisis pregnancy to women’s health and lactation consulting. She is also working with her parents to establish a ministry to former foreign students who studied in Kursk and were connected with the Norris’ while there. Lily will also be studying Russian intensively to improve her language skills.
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.
