In 2010 Dennis began typesetting for digital media, providing electronic accessibility to Bibles for minority languages. Dennis is also involved in digital archiving of newly translated Bibles so that they will be more widely available for years to come.

After completing their M.Div. And M.A. in Missions degrees at Reformed Theological Seminary in 1996, Alex and Irinia were called to serve with Russian Language Ministries in Columbia, SC. For five years they were deeply involved in training American missionaries preparing to serve among Russian speakers. They also began a direct Outreach to Slavic peoples in Columbia, SC and in the former Soviet Union.
In January of 2002, developing their vision to reach Russian speakers in America and overseas, they initiated a new ministry—MOST. MOST is the Russian word for “bridge” and this acronym stands for “ministry of Outreach to Slavic Tribes”. Alex and Irina pray that the Lord will use them as human bridges of His love to Slavic peoples in Columbia, SC America, and overseas. In addition to direct outreach, they are aiding missions agencies and churches to effectively disciple Russian speaking people in the former Soviet Union and elsewhere.
